Farmers' Markets

Residents of NJ know that farms in our "Garden State" (we are not the "farm state") are an endangered species.

So, it's great to know that there are 71 listings on Local Harvest's website for NJ.

Farmers' markets are one of the oldest forms of direct marketing by small farmers. In the last decade they have become a favorite marketing method for many farmers throughout the United States, and a weekly ritual for many shoppers.
In a farmers' market, a group of farmers sell their products once or twice a week at a designated public place like a park or parking lot. Some farmers' markets have live entertainment. Shopping at a farmers' market is a great way to meet local farmers and get fresh, flavorful produce.

You can search on their site by state or zip code for ones in your area.
