Bozrah farmers market bids farewell until next year

The sun shone on Bozrah’s Maples Farm Park on Saturday, Nov. 20, raising the temperature to the upper 40s. The annual Holiday Market, the largest in the market’s history, ran from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event drew a crowd of thousands, and traffic was backed up all along Bozrah Street (Route 163) and onto the Route 2 exit ramp. Auxiliary parking was provided at the nearby Bozrah Congregational Church, and members of the Bozrah Volunteer Fire Company directed traffic on the road.

Market goers were looking for fresh Connecticut-grown vegetables and fruits for Thanksgiving, holiday crafts and gifts, as well as tasty treats from vendors such as Quiet Corner Fudge, Holy Cannoli, Off the Griddle and Cambera Farm Bakery. If you wanted the famous cider doughnuts from Dudes Donuts, however, you were out of luck if you didn’t arrive by 11:30.

In addition to over 60 vendors, many community organizations were represented, including the Bozrah Volunteer Fire Company, the Fields Memorial School Class of 2023 and the American Legion Rivers-Janowitz Post 138, who conducted a United States flag retirement ceremony.

Said Olivia Kosilla, owner of Jeff’s Popcorn, “I always have fun coming here. The Bozrah Farmers Market has the best community spirit of all the markets in the region.”

The market will close until the spring of next year. The Mothers Day Market will be held on Saturday, May 7, 2022, and the regular Bozrah Farmers Market will be held every Friday evening from 4 to 7 p.m., starting the first week of July.
