~What to Look for on this holiday weekend ~ It’s the 4th of July AND Christmas in July!

Judy’s berries are turning blue on Simons Berry Farm, but they are not real sweet ~ as the sugar hasn’t completely risen in them yet.  With that being said, Judy will bring some for those who are having a hard time waiting 🙂  However, the following Saturday on July 9th, Judy’s Blues will be coming into their prime and everything will be full speed ahead!

The Jersey Farmhouse says it’s never too early to start Christmas shopping!  And who wouldn’t love to have Jersey Fresh blueberry jams on their Christmas morning pancakes and waffles?  Stock up for all your holiday needs, stocking stuffers and hostess gifts.  The Jersey Farmhouse will have several varieties available this week!

Spinella Farm will have string beans, greens, beets, peaches, cucumbers and zucchini ~

1895 Organic Farm is just bursting as the first of the white sweet onion and red beets came to the market last week.  This week  they will have more, along with gold and Chioggia, too.  The kales and greens and zucs will continue onward.

Busy Bee Farm is bringing the Christmas gifts to the market this week ~ and they’re beautiful.  Come for the best local honey and stay for the new coaster sets that match their bee mugs, spoon rests and tea towels.

Cherry Grove Farm has their line-up of farmstead cheeses coming to the market. What’s a farmstead cheese, you ask? When the farmer milks his own animals, on his own land, to make his or her own cheese ~ that’s what Cherry Grove Farm is all about in all their grass-fed goodness.  And winning all those blue ribbons for doing farmstead so well is pretty awesome, too!

Davidson’s Mushrooms is full of USA celebration suggestions.  Portabellas for grilling is a great idea, or gobble them up as appetizers.  Ask about their great recipes to help you prepare for your 4th of July picnic with any of their fresh mushrooms.

Kuzina by Sofia has your 4th of July essentials.  Look for their zesty pepper feta spread, roasted eggplant salad spread, Tzatziki and hummus.  And remember to grab their fresh baked spanakopita or fresh carved gyro while you’re at the market.

At Cherry Grove Farm its’ gonna look a lot like last week. Calves are being born every day which means more milk and more cheese!  Speaking of cheese, they’ll have Toma, Herdsman, Lawrenceville Jack and a bit of Reserve Jack, Full Nettle Jack and Havilah.  Brie is ripening and they’re hoping to have some for the market!

Jersey Blueberries will be making their debut on The Jersey Farmhouse table this week. New varieties will be added each week through mid-August.

Saturday, June 18th – 10 Years!

It’s Our 10 Year Anniversary Celebration!!
We thank you for 10 years of supporting our local farmers and small businesses!
  
To show their appreciation to you, our vendors have donated items from their tables for customers to win throughout the day. 
 Look for the Spinning Wheel
and get your tickets IN to WIN.  Someone gets to spin every 10 minutes.
  
Find our vendors who have been with us for 10 years, and be sure to thank them for all their hard work over the years. 
Without our dedicated family of vendors, our market would not be the success it is today
Cherry Grove Farm is knee deep in haying and calving on the farm.  All those calves mean more milk which means more cheese!  They’ll be sending folks to the market with Herdsman, Lawrenceville Jack, their blue ribbon winning Jack Reserve (limited supply) Full Nettle Jack, Havilah and their fingers are crossed for Brie!
  
Davidson’s Mushrooms says, “It’s grillin’ and chillin’ time for Father’s Day Weekend.”  They have delicious Portabellas and great recipes for shiitake salads. Stop by – Load up.

It’s the last week for strawberries at Specca Farm.  Despite the late freeze, it’s been a good run.  They still have plenty of Fava beans, though! You might wonder what one does with a Fava bean that looks like a giant lima bean in a large pod. Check out this website that has some interesting history on the Fava ~ and great ideas on how to prepare this wonderfully nutritious bean.
  
Busy Bee Farm has beautiful lavender bunches for sale in addition to their delicious Lavender, Apple Mint and Wildflower honey.
