The Coventry Farmers’ Market at the Nathan Hale Homestead

Home-grown heroes and local produce, too! The Coventry Farmers’ Market on the Nathan Hale Homestead grounds is an experience not to be missed. Open every Sunday from June – October, we’re hosting the 21st season of the Coventry Farmers’ Market on the grounds of Nathan Hale Homestead in Coventry. Our market carries the tradition of being the largest farmers’ market in Connecticut, featuring some of the best of CT-grown, CT-made products around at one of the most unspoiled countryside settings in the state.

Each week, the staff of the Homestead hosts family-friendly programs including 18thcentury games, hearth cooking, cheese-making, woodworking, and so much more. Programming is subject to change.

FREE admission to the grounds; fees apply for some programs.

The market runs from 10 am–1 pm, and the Nathan Hale Homestead is open from 10 am–2 pm on Sundays. Tours of the museum’s interiors are available for regular admission fees. Feel free to stop in to the Museum Shop to continue your shopping adventure!
