NEWTOWN, Conn. — The summer heat continues to beat down, but it doesn't seem to make a difference at the farmers market at the Fairfield Hills campus in Newtown on Tuesdays.

The market is set up on tables underneath tents, offering a bit of respite from the sun. One of the vendors is Oronoque Farms from Shelton, which served up a selection of different pies last week.

“We are voted No. 1 for our apple pies, according to CT Magazine,” says Kyle Drost. “You just have to try one of our pies, they are the best. We also offer cookies, muffins, honey, jellies, jams, and maple syrup to satisfy your taste buds."

Aradia Farms in Southbury set up an assortment of meat — including patties, sausages, country style ribs, and pork — inside a glass display case where it is kept cool.

“And don’t forget, we also have soaps, skincare products like baby powder, lotions, lip gloss and so much more,” says Kara Piorkowski.

And of course, no farmers market is compete with fresh vegetables from a variety of different farms.

Sam Cox from Waldingfield Farm in Washington checked on his vegetables. “Let me show you some of our best and biggest cucumbers,” he says, holding them up for a picture.

For a splash of summer color, Shortt’s Farm & Garden Center in Sandy Hook was selling fresh flowers at the market.

Sue Bishop, from Hobo Hound in Bethel, was selling treats for dogs as well as cats.

“What we have here are collar protectors in different patterns. They slip right on over the collar to give it style,” Bishop says.

No meal is complete with dessert, and one vendor putout an array of baked goods in a variety of colors, shapes, designs — and flavors. One tray includes cookies shaped like flip-flops and cherries while another has biscotti and mini Bundt cakes.

The Newtown Farmers Market takes place every Tuesday through October, rain or shine, inside the Fairfield Hills Campus from 2 to 6 p.m. For further information, visit its website or Facebook page.
