The Litchfield Hills Farm-Fresh Market moved outdoors across from Center School Saturday as it began a sixth year featuring the products of mostly local growers and vendors.
More than 15 vendors were dealing their goods including market anchors Berry Ledges Apiary, Laurel Ridge Farm and Brookside Farm II, all of Litchfield; the Bantam Bread Company; March Farms of Bethlehem; and Gresczyk Farms of New Hartford.
"It's hard to believe we're into our sixth year," said Market Master Kay Carroll, who also sells maple syrup made at Brookside Farm II and fresh goat cheese. "We'll have 15 to 18 vendors every week and they are all happy to be here."
The customers are, too. Many, like Brandon and Nicole Fravel of Warren, make the market a weekly priority. The Fravels were at Saturday's opening with their children, Cade, 4, and Scarlett, 1.
"You can get everything you need," Nicole Fravel said. "Today we made sure to get here early before the strawberries were gone."
