Farmers Market, Stamford Beautification Projects Get Boost from City Grants

A new farmers market is coming to the city’s West Side!

The Neighborhood Grant Program, created last year when Mayor David Martin set aside $75,000 for the initiative, provided grants ranging from $1,500 to $4,000 to local groups and organizations, including the Cove Neighborhood Association, Strawberry Hill and Springdale.

One award stands to make the most difference for the largest number of people. The city housing authority, Charter Oaks Communities, was awarded $4,000 for construction materials to start the first farmers market on the city’s West Side.
