REMINDER - IT'S FARMER'S MARKET DAY IN NEW FAIRFIELD ON WEDNESDAYS!   9:00 AM - 12:00 NOON   see details below:   NEW FAIRFIELD HAS ITS OWN FARMER’S MARKET!    August 20th, was the launch of the New Fairfield Farmers Market, located conveniently at the Little Red School House, close to the center of town.

In fact, she recently closed on my best friend's home, and she also has a new listing with one of my employees. In today's market, Lisa is by far the best realtor to have working for you and your family. She is great!
