FFM 2023 Postcard.jpg

It is that time of year again- the largest single day show in the whole country is back!!! On March 4th the E.O. Smith High School Coral Project is going to be hosting the 16th annual Frag Farmer's Market again. I have a HUGE list of amazing vendors signed up, with all of the big names that have been there in the past and a few new ones that I am very excited to add. More info to come as the last little details are settled!
Hope to see all my brothers and sisters from the city and surrounding areas up for the day.

Hi Fitch4,
Is there a thread that all the vendors are on?

I'm looking for a vendor who might have a frag of PURPLE MONSTER acro in their system, that I could make arrangements to buy in advance and pick up at the FFM ?

Thanks,
Jim C.

I wish... Your best bet would be to post up in the FB group that you are looking for it. If you have a specific vendor that you are looking for, I can point you their way. I am sure that someone has one, just a matter of who!

Okay, here it is... the 2023 New England Frag Farmer's Market Vendor List. It is another HUGE list of great vendors for this year. Most of the regular names are back, and few great new ones have been added to the ranks. It will be another great year, and definitely one not to miss. More vendors at the FFM than at any other show, two day or one day! Hope to see everyone out there on March 4th at E.O. Smith High School in Storrs CT for the 16th annual Frag Farmer's Market!
Inevitably I forgot someone, spelled someone's name wrong and there may be some shifting between now and March 4th. I'll post updates as they come up!

FFM 2023 Talks Ad copy.png

Due to COVID, we had skipped the speakers the last few years, but are bringing it back in a huge way this year. Here are the speakers for the 2023 FFM! We have a great range of talks and something for everyone. A little "How to" talk on fragging from my friends down at the Marine Science Magnet School - Eric Litvinoff and Mike Guyot. Some water chemistry from one of the most knowledgeable water chemistry people I know, and someone who is just great at explaining things (a skill that I, as a teacher, really appreciate!)- Lou Ekus. Lastly, and definitely not least, one of the coolest stories that has come up in the reefing community in quite some time- a privately owned 17,000 gallon reef tank with an owner who actively participates in running it. Andrew Sandler from Polo Reef will be coming out to talk about his experiences running one of the most amazing tanks in the world!
Thanks to all of you guys who have agreed to come speak this year and share your stories and expertise with the FFM group!

I dropped this little nugget yesterday in the FB group but wanted to share it here as well.

Polo Reef Tour Prize.jpg


Okay, I have been sitting on this one for a while now and I just can't keep it on the DL anymore. It's not too often that we get a prize for the raffle that I am thinking "I REALLY want to win that." Polo Reef by Andrew Sandler has donated, what might be the grand prize for the raffle this year, a personal tour of his 17,000 gallon home aquarium. The winner, and one guest, will get to go out to Andrew's house and get a guided tour of this unbelievable reef tank (date and time to be determined). If you have not seen the videos of this tank, it is AWESOME, and every reefer's dream. This is a prize that is truly priceless and I want to give a HUGE shout out to Andrew Sandler for his generosity (more on that later...) in donating this to the raffle and a shout out to Rachid Stoury for working with me to get this all set-up.
On a related note, Andrew will also be speaking at the FFM this year and have a table for his Polo Reef, with swag and frags- all proceeds going to various reef related causes. I am psyched to be able to have them there this year and help them promote their mission. You can check out www.poloreef.com to see what they have going on.

Now, I will see you ALL at the FFM on March 4th...- E.O. Smith High School in Storrs., CT
Can't win if you are not there!
