STRATFORD, Conn. – Looking for a fresh food fix? The Stratford Farmers Market at Paradise Green is the place to be.

The aroma of fresh herbs for sale from Moorefield Herb Farm in Trumbull was breath-taking, and Gazy Brother Farm offered up bushels of fresh fruit and vegetables on Monday as July 4th holiday shoppers checked out the goods.

Ed and Laurie Popadic, owners of Pepe’s Cream of the Crop, were kept busy as they nearly sold out of all their claims in just a few hours at the market. The clams of all different sizes are caught fresh daily.

“Our clams are always harvested fresh, and you can count on that!” said Ed Popadic.

Granola by Jen was another merchant, with Jen Olbrys selling various types of granola she has developed since starting her company back in March 2013.

David Cochran, owner and soap maker of D’AndiCraft, was selling his homemade soaps and candles. “We have been in business for about five years now, and this is our third year at the market,” Cochran said.

Chris Quiriconi, a Stratford resident and member of the band Tap That, was the day's entertainment, performing hit songs under the gazebo. He has been a member of the band since 2010 and travel all around Connecticut for performances.

The market is open Mondays from 2 to 6 p.m. For move information about the market, click here to visit its Facebook page.
