2018’s Downtown Market is a juried Crafts, Art, and jewelry show accompanied by live Music, activities for children, and more than 55 vendors. Located at Colonial Square Parking Lot, the show, in its third year, is sponsored by Stratford’s Economic Development Commission and the Stratford Arts Commission. The show is also sponsored by People’s United Bank, Dougherty Insurance, Knott, Knott & Dunn as well as the Mayor’s Charity Golf Tournament. The Show has been developed by the members of Stratford business and arts communities.

“The Downtown Market” is designed to bring visitors from Fairfield and New Haven Counties to Stratford to patronize stores and restaurants and shop Stratford,” says Neil Sherman, a member of Stratford’s Economic Development Commission and the show’s founder. “Producing Downtown Market is a way of bringing Connecticut to Stratford to enjoy our community while we celebrate Stratford and the region’s artistic community.”
