I posted my pictures from A Walk Through the Coventry Farmers Market last month, and today I’m posting the day trip. I could go on and on about how bright and vibrant the market is, but I’m going to let the fruits and veggies of the Coventry Farmers Market speak for themselves. Day trip itinerary is below.

Itinerary: A Day Trip to the Coventry Farmers Market
Here’s the trick with a day trip that involves a farmers market: if you plan to shop, you need to be prepared to store the food properly (if the market is not the last stop on your itinerary). I am no food storage expert, but I think it’s logical to keep fruits, veggies, meats, and dairy as icy as possible if you’re going somewhere else after the market. Same goes for a picnic. If you’re buying lunch or a snack at the market, eat it shortly after the purchase, or store it cold until you’re ready to eat.Lucky for everyone, Coventry has great spots to take a picnic lunch after the market. You can either stay and eat on the grounds of the Nathan Hale Homestead, or, head to a local vineyard.

Once the eating and shopping is done (or before, the market doesn’t open until 11 a.m. on Sundays), hit up some antique stores on the town’s main drag. You can read more about Coventry’s “downtown” antiquing in A Day Trip to Coventry, Connecticut.
