It may be dead of winter, but the Downtown Milford Farmers' Market and the Downtown Milford Business Association are already at work putting plans together for a big summer season. This year, the Farmers' Market will be run by the DMBA.
The Downtown Milford Farmers' Market was started in 2005 and run by Sabrina Santoro of Sunflower Farms in Orange until 2012, when Alex Malaspinas took over the role of market master. Since its inception, the market has grown steadily year after year. Malaspinas attributes that to marketing not only the local foods and products for sale but the personalities and livelihoods of the vendors themselves.
