Downtown Country Fair - 10am to 4pm Saturday, October 1, 2016


The Willimantic Food Coop's annual Downtown Country Fair is always a fun time. This year promises to be the best yet, as the Coop has joined forces with the Willimantic Farmers Market (Connecticut's longest-running farmers' market)  and moved the fair to Jillson Square - which is located at the corner of Jackson St. & Main St. in Willimantic.
