West Windsor Community Farmers Market News & Events

The WWCFM continues to be a popular gathering space each Saturday, rain or shine from 9:00am-1:00pm, for the community as well as neighboring towns, to directly connect with locally owned farms and local food producers. Please visit www.westwindsorfarmersmarket.org for up to date weekly events and a complete farm and vendor roster.

The WWCFM is proud to have been voted the Top Celebrated Market in New Jersey and  in the Top 100 Nationwide in the 2013 American Farmland Trust “I Love My Farmers Market” Contest.  In addition, live music and community groups help to round out the overall market experience.

Of note this month, August 9 will feature the NJ Peach Promotion Council Amateur Peach Pie Bake Off Contest, with the winning entry moving on to the NJ State Finals in late August for a chance to win the $300 prize.  Bakers are still being accepted until August 6!  Pies are due at the market at 10:30am with judging at 11:00am.  First, Second and Third place WWCFM winners will receive Market Bucks to be used as cash at the farmers market this season.  Amateur bakers only and pre-registration is required.  To register, for more details and rules, please email manager@westwindsorfarmersmarket.org.  The newly crowned New Jersey Peach Queen will also make an appearance at the WWCFM on August 9 as part of her statewide farmers market tour.
