TRUMBULL, Conn. – Shoppers at the Trumbull Farmers Market were greeted by the mouth-watering aroma of brick oven pizza from Silver Sands Pizza of Milford.
The brick oven was installed under a tent, with owner Osmond and co-worker Eric making fresh pizzas to order. The market was so busy that they ran out of dough and had to turn away customers.
Their tent was one of many set up last week on the grounds of the John B. Nichols Community Center at 1773 Huntington Turnpike.
Another popular vendor was Wave Hill Breads. Lisa Peters was behind the counter, offering up the fresh-baked breads from the Norwalk-based bakery, where her daughter, Avery Peters, is the head baker.
“We started with two or three types of bread, and now we’ve probably more then tripled that,” Lisa Peters said.
The most popular choice is roman focaccia, she said. They also sold out of their famous monkey bread.
Next to the bakery was Alchemist Cold Brew, with founder Matt Salvi behind the table. It a small-batch handcrafted cold brew manufacturer out of Milford. They also make a cold brew coffee concentrate, using a “cold water extraction method to produce a high caffeinated, rich dark chocolate flavored concentrate,” according to their brochure.
This type of coffee is guaranteed to stay fresh up to two weeks, with less acid in the product.
“This is our first year in business, and we’ve decided to come and see if there is any interest. So far it has been and we sell out every week,” said Salvi.
Other vendors at the market included CTK (carrot top kitchens) with owner Bill Anastas from Redding; Molly & Murphy dog biscuits with Chris Hamilton from Trumbull; DrewBaQ food truck; Moorefield Herb Farm from Trumbull; Bongo and Capacci from Watertown; Beldotti Bakeries from Stamford; OX Hollow Farm from Roxbury, and Bottle Cap Magnets by Rachel from Trumbull.
