They’ll be limited summer squash, lettuce, sweet peppers, rainbow chard, kale, baby beets and Easter egg radishes.

Mill Creek Apiary has started a “Farmstead Series” highlighting honey from specific farms. The first farm highlighted is from 1895 Organic Farm. We are introducing this first release in the FARMSTEAD SERIES… fresh honey extracted from hives located at 1895 Organic Farm in Lumberton, NJ. This single source raw honey is very flavorful and floral from the spring blossoms of black locust, tulip poplar, alfalfa, clover, and many others. Only available at the Burlington County Farmers Market while supplies last! Grab it at 1895’s table or Mill Creek’s table this Saturday. $1 of each jar will be donated to honeybee research to aid in ongoing efforts to improve the well-being of our beloved pollinators.

The calm before the blueberry storm at Whalen Farms ~

A huge congrats goes out to Cindy of Our Souls Shine as she embarks on her newest journey – partnering with Haddon Culinary, where she will be selling her gluten-free, zero sugar, low carb, diabetic friendly and keto friendly desserts ~ from cookies and brownies, to Whoopie pies and Peanut butter brownies. With all of this going on, Cindy is never too busy to be at our market every Saturday with all of the above, plus applesauce, pindjur and elderberry syrup.
