Directions to the market

Mission Statement:  The mission of the Rutgers Gardens Farmers Market is to provide the local community, including residents, students, university faculty and staff, University Dining, and restaurants the opportunity to experience and purchase fresh, locally grown and/or prepared food products.

Purpose:  The Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences is proud to partner with the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station to offer the Rutgers Gardens Farmers’ Market to the G. H. Cook and surrounding communities.  The market provides a variety of products grown and produced locally, such as grassfed beef, cheese, vegetables, poultry, and baked goods.

Rutgers University and Rutgers Gardens wishes to help support the local farmers, as well as the local community and economy, by utilizing an area at the entrance to the Gardens, adjacent to Ryders Lane, for the Market.  The market will give commuters and students easy access to fresh, locally grown crops and commodities. It will also provide “one-stop-shopping” for local restaurants looking for a variety of products from a diverse group of farms and vendors. The market will promote sustainable farming as well as focus upon recycling and conservation.
