In New Jersey, farmer’s markets are all over. They are often big and lots of fun. We believe in farmer’s markets as great places to buy food that has been cared for and grown by smaller, local farmers and producers. This not only can bring you higher quality food, but fresher products that support people working to make a go of farming in our local area. We need them.
