The Stonington Village Farmer's Market
**** every Saturday from June through October, 9am-noon, RAIN OR SHINE.
Located adjacent to the Town Dock on the Harbor (only 2 blocks from the apartment) and has proved an enormously popular addition to life in the Boro. 10 to 15 vendors assemble beside the playground to offer locally (CT.) produced vegetables, fruit, cut flowers and decorative plants, jams, all sorts of breads, pies and baked goods, meat, fish, shellfish--and more, depending on the season. The Stonington Village Improvement Association oversees this market under a tent in its center & provides fresh coffee & tea, kindly donated by local restaurants & merchants. Contributions for the refreshments go to funding SVIA projects

Just ten minutes from the Mystic drawbridge lies Stonington Borough, called “the most beautiful seaside village in New England.” Because the Borough is a narrow, mile-long peninsula pointing into Fisher’s Island Sound and Little Narragansett Bay, nothing is more than a short walk from your car or boat.
From “The Point” you can view three states--CT, RI, & NY-- or see the last remaining commercial fleet in the state bring lobster and famous scallops and flounder to the Town Dock. The Borough is a major yachting center with all the amenities and our beautiful harbor boasts boats of all types and sizes.
From The Borough, you can visit Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium, Watch Hill RI, the RI beaches, and either Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun Casinos .... all with only a 10 to 30 minute drive.
Other Activities: Kayaking, Casino
