The Tony Inzero Farmers Market, sponsored by the city, has operated on the West Haven Green since 2000.
The market, nestled at Campbell Avenue and Main Street, opened its 2021 season July 8 and includes state farmers selling homegrown fruits and vegetables from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays through Oct. 23. It also includes local crafters selling wares. Food trucks are a staple of the Thursday markets as well.
Parking is available on Campbell Avenue parallel to the Green. Free parking is also available in the municipal lot behind City Hall, 355 Main St. The entrances are on Savin Avenue and Center Street.
The farmers market was dedicated in 2010 in memory of Anthony F. “Tony” Inzero, a leader of the downtown business community who co-owned Flower Affair on Campbell Avenue with Betty DelVecchio for many years. Inzero was a founding member and longtime president of the West Haven Business Association who spearheaded a variety of events and programs to drum up business for fellow merchants, including the first farmers market in July 2000. Inzero, who lived in Hamden, died July 31, 2009, at age 59.
