Every Day a Community Farm Market is Open Near You!

2 17

jersey_fresh_logoOK, I’ve got food on the brain. I always do. That’s a foodie for ya!  Anyway, it’s that time of year here in The Garden State when the farmer’s markets open.  Did you know that there is a community farm market open every day of the week in the Morris/Essex county area — from now until October or November?  Here’s a little list that Martine Marcus of Burden Free Foods put together for us:

  • Monday – East Hanover & Maplewood
  • Tuesday – Millburn
  • Wednesday – Jersey City
  • Thursday – Livingston & Madison
  • Friday – Newark
  • Saturday – Boonton, Chatham, Bernardsville & Montclair
  • Sunday – Morristown & Summit

For a more detailed listing, visit The State of New Jersey Department of Agriculture Jersey Fresh website.

Morristown opened this past Sunday and The Green Divas were there!  What a treat, Burden Free Foods was there offering delicious gluten-free and vegan bakery items – all made from organic or locally-sourced ingredients. Pickles, The Health Shoppe, three farmers were represented as well.

So get out, buy local, buy organic — treat yourself and your family to some freshly grown produce and other locally-produced food. There’s nothing like it.  GD Jen

    I love organic produce, back home in New Zealand we would often go out on a Sunday and get food direct from the farmers. It’s not much cheaper but the variety and quality are unbeatable.

    Unfortunately now I’m living in Singapore and if there is a farm within any reasonable distance I’d be amazed.

    It would be great to have a directory on a global scale that let you know where the closest location was!
