In Pictures / Despite rain New Canaan’s Farmers’ Market goes on

NEW CANAAN — And the rain, rain, rain came down, down, down, but the vendors kept on selling.

Saturday’s weekly Farmers’ Market was a damp affair, but participants muddled through with as much sunshiny spirit as they could muster.

“You get rainy day customers,” said Dominic Gazy, fourth generation farmer with Gazy Bros. Farm in Oxford, which is celebrating its 100th year in continuous operation.

“You get the diehards,” he said. “And there’s extra parking on rainy days.”

While business will likely be half of what it is on a clear day, Gazy chooses to look at the glass as half full. “It’s better than nothing,” he said.

Fortunately, too, some customers brought positive attitudes to the market as well.

“It’s not easy for you all today,” one customer told a vendor. “I appreciate you being here.”
