Fairfield County

When thinking of Fairfield County, farms are probably not the first thing that come to mind.  However, locally raised oysters,  fresh grown peaches, and urban farms, all find their home in this county.  Squeezing  right up next to New York, you'll find many city dwellers escaping their cramped quarters to discover the open farmlands during the summer months. Local residents know how to take advantage of CT grown food as the region bursts with farmers markets that bustle throughout the week.  Though you may not be able to fit some of the fancy farm-to-table restaurants into your budget, you know that you can always afford, and are always afforded welcome, at the many farm stands, markets, and pick-your-own farms throughout the area.
