Upcoming Events at West Windsor Community Farmers Market

The WWCFM continues to be a popular gathering space each Saturday, rain or shine from 9:00am-1:00pm

A wide array of locally grown, raised and produced fruits, vegetables, grass-fed meats, dairy, pastured eggs, woven fibers, soap, bakery items, flowers, honey, sauces, jams, fresh juices, crepes and more can be found at the market each week. In addition, live music and community groups help to round out the overall market experience.

*Of note this month, September 6 will feature their second Sponsor Day of the season where they thank the local businesses that sponsor the market.  Various local businesses will be on site during the market day with information as well as giveaways for shoppers.

On September 27, WWCFM hosts their first ever Food Blogger and Writer Day.  Several local food writers and bloggers will be on site for a question and answer panel with shoppers.  As more folks become aware of the importance of local food and farmers markets, they are connecting the farms, food lovers and writers with this one-day event.
