Family Day in collaboration with the Westport Farmers’ Market

September 11 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A Family Day featuring a range of nature-inspired art activities will be held on Saturday, September 11 from 12 – 4 p.m. Explore the Between The Ground and the Sky exhibition, enjoy delicious offerings from the Parlor, Bees Knees, and On The Fly food trucks, and listen to multi-instrumentalist Henry Jones. The event is rain or shine.

Check out more than 50 large-scale photographs, both color and black and white, of local farms by Anne Burmeister and Ashley Skatoff, two local accomplished photographers. The photographs tell a compelling and visually arresting story of the importance of local farms and farmers. The Who Grows Your Food initiative was developed by the Westport Farmers’ Market during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic as a means to educate people on the role that local farmers play in providing food for the community.  The farms included are:
