Tell Me Something Good About Connecticut November 19th, 2019

November 19, 2019



Black Friday is approaching fast, and right behind it comes Cyber Monday. That’s when online sellers offer some of their biggest and best deals of the year. Did you know that we’re going to spend more than half a trillion dollars online this holiday season? And there are millions and millions of companies selling online – Amazon alone has more than five million third-party sellers. You can find the same item from six or more different vendors. How do you know which ones you can trust? It’s like the wild west, but there’s a new sheriff in town, and they’re from Connecticut.


As you start getting ready for Thanksgiving, consider stocking up on fresh produce and other ingredients at any of Connecticut’s farmers markets. That’s right, there are still over a dozen farmers markets open throughout the state and many even continue throughout the winter.
We'll give you a few to consider for your Thanksgiving and holiday meal prep!
