Farmers Market Every Saturday 9-1

Only 4 more weeks! 


Fall is in the air! Ort Farms is offering the best of the late summer season, like corn and tomatoes, as well as pumpkins (already?). 

It’s time to pickle and make preserves! Time to stock up on your favorites to put in the freezer for later! Only four more weeks of the market! 

Olive pockets, croissants and scones from Hoboken Farms freeze well. Better have a few of Griggstown chicken pot pies for the colder months! You can also freeze the Zabka pierogies! I’ll be stocking up on Paolo’s wings – can’t get through the winter without them. Don’t forget to try the new pickles, too! JM Treats & Eats now offers homemade pop tarts!
