ctgrown Connecticut agricultural officials are starting to crackdown on vendors at farmers markets who are selling produce marked as “Connecticut Grown”, but is not truly grown in Connecticut.

The inspections are a result of a new state law that requires anyone selling what they claim is a native-grown product do so in the immediate vicinity of a sign that identifies it as Connecticut-grown and discloses the name and address of the person or business that produced it.

Violators who are found to be selling “Connecticut Grown” produce which is not actually grown in state are subject to a warning for a first offense and a $100 fine for each subsequent offense.
