Local Producers

We partner with nearby producers to bring you local, organic, farm-fresh goodness every day.

We Love Local

For New Morning Market, situated among the rolling hills of Connecticut’s Litchfield County, we define local as the 100-mile radius stretching west to the Hudson Valley, north into the Berkshires, east into Rhode Island, and south to Long Island Sound. From seasonal organic produce grown in Connecticut’s lush river valleys to iconic New York bagels made fresh daily, we’re committed to bringing you the best products from our local farmers and makers.

Local Stories

Averill Farm

Washington Depot, CT

All counted, 100 different kinds of apples grow at Averill Farm in Washington Depot, CT.  Familiar fall favorites—think Macintosh and Red Delicious—are planted along with heirlooms, newer disease-resistant varieties, and cider-specific cultivars, with lesser known names like Baldwin, Liberty, and Crimson Crisp. You’ll find many of these unusual varieties at New Morning Market as the season progresses.

Calf + Clover Farm

Cornwall, CT

Nestled in the Litchfield Hills, in a town committed to preserving cathedral pines and covered bridges, there’s a family keeping another piece of New England’s history alive. Sarah and Jeff Casel, artists turned first-generation dairy farmers, are committed to producing delicious raw milk from entirely grass-fed cows in Cornwall. Calf + Clover Creamery’s 120-acres spans both sides of Rt. 7 and is mostly pasture: green, lush, and life-giving. On any given day, the rolling expanse of field is broken by the Casel’s mixed herd of doe-eyed Jerseys and brown-speckled Normandies.

Cato Corner Farm

Colchester, CT

Through the age-old alchemy of cheesemaking, the mother and son team behind Cato Corner Farm transform the flavors of their Colchester, CT, pasture into delicious farmstead cheeses. In 1979, Elizabeth MacAlister purchased the plot of land that now houses a barn and milking parlor for their 45 Jersey Cows, as well a creamery and cheese shop. In the mid-nineties, after years of managing a small herd of goat and sheep and dabbling in home-scale cheese making, she purchased 13 cows with a plan to produce cheese for sale. A few years later, her son Mark Gillman moved back to the family farm and took on the role of head cheese maker.

Cross Culture Kombucha

Danbury, CT

There’s something special about a glass of kombucha straight from the tap according to Liz and Ian Ceppos of Cross Culture Kombucha. In fact, this very notion transformed them from homebrewers to business owners. Ian first started making small batches of kombucha, a probiotic-rich fermented tea, on his kitchen counter. He brewed tea, inoculated it with a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (otherwise known as a SCOBY), and added organic sugar to fuel the fermentation process. After a week or two, the tea was completely transformed.

Gilbertie’s Herb Gardens

Easton, CT

In an intricate dance of soil, seed, and sun, Sal Gilbertie oversees the production of millions of organic seedlings to feed Connecticut’s families. In a fleet of greenhouses in Easton, CT, Sal and the staff of Gilbertie’s Herb Gardens coax tender green plants of an astonishing variety to fruition according to the rhythm of the season. Gilbertie’s custom blends of mesclun and petite edible greens grace local tables year-round. In spring and summer, gardeners eagerly await their pint-sized pots of culinary herbs (think lavender and lemon balm, basil and rosemary, an entire collection of cultivated mints) and six-packs of hardy vegetable seedlings.

Sepe Farm

Sandy Hook, CT

On three acres of meticulously managed pasture in Sandy Hook, Pete and Carol Sepe raise 200 sheep each year. Behind their farmhouse and tidy gardens, the “mother flock” of sheep rests in the shade when not foraging for fresh grass or socializing with the Sepes. The ewes have seniority status on the farm, with the eldest enjoying her tenth year here. Prized for their naturally colored coats (or “fleeces” in the fiber world) in shades of charcoal, chocolate, and smoke, they have been selected to bear future generations for the farm.

Sun One Farm

Bethlehem, CT

The farmers at Sun One Organic Farm intimately follow the lay of the land—assessing the slopes and valleys of 65 acres of gently rolling field and forest in Bethlehem, CT, according to the principles of nature. Wind, water, and sunlight are all elements that farm owner Rob Maddox and farm managers Katherine and Michael consider when planting their diverse mix of vegetables, herbs, flowers and fruit. Apple, peach, and pear trees dot the landscape, maximizing airflow to naturally dissuade disease. A birdbath among the blueberry bushes deters thirsty birds from grazing in search of water.
