The Tony Inzero Farmers Market is sponsored by the city and has operated since 2000 — first on the West Haven Green, and since 2022 in the Oak Street Beach parking lot off Captain Thomas Boulevard.
The farmers market, nestled on the right side of the Oak Street lot, will open its 2023 season July 6. The market will include state farmers selling homegrown fruits and vegetables and crafters selling wares from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursdays and Saturdays through Oct. 14.
It will also include more than 20 different vendors, crafters, organizations and food trucks throughout the season.
Parking is available in the Oak Street municipal lot and on Palace Street. Oak Street is on the senior shuttle route and the CTtransit route. In addition, a van will run from the West Haven Senior Center, 201 Noble St., to Oak Street on Thursdays.
The farmers market was dedicated in 2010 in memory of Anthony F. “Tony” Inzero, a leader in 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 2000. Inzero, who lived in Hamden, died in 2009 at age 59.
