East Haddam Farmers' Market
The East Haddam Farmers' Market started in 2012 as a collaborative effort between the local Agriculture Commission and the Economic Development Commission. Working closely with and receiving full support from the Board of Selectmen and a group of dedicated volunteers, the 2012 and 2013 farmers' markets took place at the East Haddam Grange. In 2014, due to constuction at the Grange Hall, the market had to be moved. Thankfully, we were invited to use the big field at Ballek's Garden Center where we instantly felt at home.

driven by t&c so many times .. finally had a need for bug spray and wanted to check out their flowers. organic bug killer was in stock. bought some new perennials to fill out the garden. they do things a little different here - the tables covered with flowers are organized by color, which is helpful if you are trying to have a garden with just one color. they also have a little farm stand in the parking lot and all the produce was local and looks good .. and the stand also sells farm to hearth breads, which is good because usually the bakery isn't open when i am over this way.
I have bought a few pieces here in the last year and have been very satisfied with the selection and price. The owners/employees are always friendly and helpful. Whenever I'm looking for a particular piece, this is one of the first places I check out. As a previous reviewer mentioned, the downstairs is a great spot for bargains.
