Westport Farmers Market remembers Paul Newman

Posted: Updated:
WESTPORT -

The Westport Farmers Market celebrated the memory of its most famous founding member Thursday -- Paul Newman.

The 12-year-old market is where vendors can sell locally grown and health conscious products. 

Visitors had a chance to taste test some fresh food and iced tea while snapping selfies alongside a life-sized cutout bearing Newman's likeness.

The event’s organizers say the Newman’s Own foundation's mission aligns with their own -- encouraging people to live better, healthier lives. 

The Farmers Market returns Thursday, Aug. 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Newman's Own is planning to make a video in honor of Paul Newman using memories from the market. It will be released on the anniversary of his death in September.

People who can't make it to the market are invited to share stories with social@newmansownfoundation.org.
