History: The Farmers’ Market at Billings Forge was created in 2007 as a seasonal weekly market providing the residents of Billings Forge and the surrounding Frog Hollow neighborhood with access to fresh, local foods. Between 2008 and 2009, The Farmers’ Market doubled its sales to become Hartford’s largest farmers’ market. Our farmers and food artisans travel from all over Connecticut to sell their fresh, delicious goods directly to consumers. In addition to produce, fruits, and flowers the market also features delicious breads, fresh dairy, locally made Italian ice, eggs, jams, pickles, soaps, and locally roasted coffees. 2010 saw the addition of featured products from our own onsite garden! Please visit our vendors page to learn more about the families, artisans, and entrepreneurs who join us every week.

The Farmers' Market at Billings Forge is open year round. Picnic tables are available outside in the summertime and in the Studio during the winter – stay and enjoy your lunch!
