West Windsor Community Farmers Market
West Windsor, NJ, July 20, 2015 —Held every Saturday, from 9:00am-1:00pm, rain or shine, right up until Thanksgiving, the West Windsor Community Farmers Market is a must do on Saturday mornings. Stop by to see for yourself why the West Windsor Community Farmers Market continues to be New Jersey’s favorite farmers market*. Connect directly with the folks who grow and raise your food, enjoy live music, prepared foods, cooking demonstrations and special events all in an open-air marketplace.
Fifteen of Central New Jersey’s best farms and eleven artisan vendors gather weekly to bring a wide array of local products to the Market for residents of West Windsor and neighboring towns to enjoy. Seasonal, locally grown fruit, vegetables, mushrooms, pastured meats and poultry, dairy and farm fresh eggs can be found at the market along with woven fiber products, breads, baked goods, flowers, plants, honey, prepared foods, soap, sauces, jams, pickled vegetables and wine. Breakfast and brunch selections include Jammin’ Crepes’ savory and sweet crepes, The Feed Truck’s unique egg sandwiches, along with freshly made juices from Tico’s Juice Truck. Pull up a chair or curb and enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of our market!
Be sure to stop by the Market Information Tent to sign up for our weekly newsletter, receive market information, borrow a cookbook and learn about our sponsors. Farmers market gift certificates (Market Bucks) are available for purchase and make great gifts.
Don’t forget to bring your knives, scissors and lawn tools for sharpening at Nice and Sharp. Wind down from stress with bi-weekly massage with Gail Laboard’s The Touch That Heals.
