Elite Farmers Market -- Danbury Fair Mall

It's been operating for about a week and a half now. Has anyone else been? I picked up some French country bread from Wave Hill Bakery (based out of Norwalk, I believe) and another round bread from a vendor whose name I unfortunately don't remember (it was a younger woman running the stand). Both had a taste similar to the bread in southern Italy many times I've had while on vacation with family. Sampled some toma cheese which was fantastic, and also bought coconut-ginger cookies and kettle corn (which was INCREDIBLY addictive...it didn't have that sickly sweet taste that makes me nauseous). Produce looked good, would imagine it will get significantly better as the weather gets better. A few farms that I recognized from the Union Square Greenmarket like Migliorelli were there, and their greens looked great, although I didn't pick any up. It seems like a very promising addition to the area, I just wish it operated longer than it does (10-2 Wednesday and Saturday).
