Tip for Farm-to-Table Gourmets: You Can Buy Winvian's Produce at Morris Marketplace on Sundays
Heading to the Bethlehem Fair this weekend, or simply planning a Sunday drive to take in the beauty of Litchfield County, which will soon blush with autumn colors? If you're also a fine dining and food connoisseur, there are too many great discoveries to list here. This nugget is about just one of them, the opportunity to connect with a relatively new farmers market operation based on a landmark property in Morris (adjacent to Litchfield).
The Morris Markeplace, among other great items, happens to have as one of its vendors the nearby luxe inn and spa Winvian, where acclaimed chef Chris Eddy makes culinary magic in the kitchen, in large part with the produce he grows in his own on-site gardens and greenhouses. The earthy fingerling potatoes, especially the purple ones, that he has sent to the Marketplace recently have been outstanding.
Meanwhile, be sure to check out all that Winvian has to offer, and while you're in the region, you might drive by the western rim of gorgeous Bantam Lake on the way to get the couture ice creams and award-winning cheeses at Arethusa Farm in Bantam--or discover the region's other top treasures by consulting our Best of Connecticut 2013.Tip for Farm-to-Table Gourmets: You Can Buy Winvian's Produce at Morris Marketplace on Sundays
