Why does a Land Trust run a farmers’ market? Because buying local keeps family farmers in business and farmland intact.
The Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers’ Market was started in 2007 to provide local farmers a place to sell their products directly to consumers. Though modest at first, it blossomed over the years into a highly anticipated community event that routinely attracts more than a thousand customers to the historic Dvoor Farm every Sunday from May to November.
The market features 15 to 20 farmers who sell only products they grow or make themselves, including organic produce, grass-fed meats, artisan cheese and bread, honey, wine, live plants and more. Our monthly Winter Market, though smaller in scale, has a similar choice of items.
2013 Economic Survey
The Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers’ Market had an annual combined economic impact of $2.6 million on its vendors, host neighborhood and surrounding region, according to a report recently completed by SEED. The SEED evaluation team also learned that our Farmers’ Market attracts about 800 shoppers per market day for an estimated annual attendance of 22,400 shoppers. You can read the SEED Report to discover how our Farmers’ Market benefits our local economy.
