The South Windsor Historical Society Farmers' Market kicked off its third season on Sunday with 10 vendors offering an array of fresh produce, dairy, locally made products and, yes, even Italian ice.
Residents walked around the Union District School property enjoying the gorgeous, sun-splashed day.
Entertainment was provided by Jerry O'Connor on the accoustic guitar for adults and face painting for the kids. There were even pony rides offered courtesy Louisa Mayock of Granby's Fiddlehead Farm.
"This is the best thing for the community," said South Windsor resident Heather Labbe. "It's good for us physically because we eat fresh, local products and we support local businesses. But it's also good for the community. I've seen 10 people I know so far while I've been here. ...
"We need more of this."
Proceeds from the market go to the historical society's efforts to restore the Union District School building.
Here's a photo gallery of some of what was seen on the scene.
