  PUTNAM — The ground may have been a
bit frozen, but that did not stop the golden
shovels from breaking into it on the site of
the new home to the Putnam farmers’ mar-
ket Thursday, Oct. 30.
  The event, attended by several town offi-
cials and local farmers, was held in the
open space across from Hope Community
Church, where the permanent facility — to
be called the Riverview Marketplace — will
be built.
  Community        Development       Director
Delpha Very kicked off the exciting event,
thanking all involved in the project.
  “This is a great day,” she said. “This is a
project that has been at least a year and a
half in the making and, due to the partner-
ships that have been created over this time,
[is] a phenomenal, phenomenal thing.”
  Building the facility will give the farmers
in the area the opportunity to grow, accord-
ing to Very.
  “This permanent home for the farmers
here in our Northeastern Connecticut
region is giving us the opportunity, and
them the opportunity, to focus on growing,
