Just about two weeks ago, Springdale residents saw new indoor farmer's market sprout up on Hope Street called Sophia Farmers Market.
Owned by Yasar Cubukcu, who also operates Harvest Field Market in Mamaroneck, has equipped his store with organic vegetables and fruits, as well as pasta, bread, milk, nuts, flowers and European goods.
Cubukcu, who is a Norwalk resident, told Patch that he's always wanted to expand his business to his home state of Connecticut and has plans to bring an even larger variety of goods to the new store, particularly cheese. The inventory is a mixture of goods from local farms, as well as items from countries including Greece, Italy and Latin America.
When asked how residents have responded so far to Sophia Farmers Market, Cubukcu said that "they love it."
"They love that we're clean and that we have good quality fruits and veggies. And they love that they can get products from Europe that they can't find anywhere else," he said.
