Farmers' Markets in Bergen County

 One of the most delicious things about summer is the local farmers' market. New Jersey is still the Garden State, so we are lucky to be blessed with some fantastic produce. During the summer, at least, we can enjoy fruits and vegetables that haven't had to travel hundreds or even thousands of miles to reach us. The farm-to-table trend is not only good for our health, it's also important to our local economy. So support Jersey farms and farmers by eating fresh and buying local.

Besides local and organic fruits and vegetables, you can also find artisan baked goods and homemade wine, honey, cheese and soaps at many of the markets. WIC and Senior FMNP vouchers are now accepted by many farmers, which is great news for families and seniors in this economy.
