Fresh from a Farm near You

Posted by: Sarah Graves - May 06, 2015

Spring brings back one of my favorite things to do head out to a local farmers market.   Food and agriculture are New Jersey's third largest industry.  Farmers in the Garden State produce more than 100 different kinds of fruits and vegetables for you to enjoy from Jersey corn, tomatoes, peaches, and more.   It can be a fun adventure for parents and kids to wander the booths looking for new and different foods grown here in the Garden state.   Check the list below for a town near you.
