A popular community event is returning to Newtown next month, offering a wide array of artisans’ and other vendors’ wares for sale.
The annual Newtown Market Day is set to be held on Oct. 7 from 10 AM – 4 PM, with a rain date set for Oct. 8 at the same times of day. For the 47th year, local residents and visitors can come and buy unique items from countless vendors while enjoying activities centered around the town’s deep roots in American history.
“Market Day celebrates the colonial tradition of local farmers & homesteaders bringing their crops, livestock, and homemade wares into town to sell to neighbors & townspeople. It has transformed throughout the years to feature high-quality fine artists, crafters, food artisans & a farmer’s market,” the event’s official website reads.
Held in the area of Court Street, the Newtown Historic Association will be organizing the day’s events. While admission to the event is free, some activities require a small participation fee in cash.
