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.
Shoppers can find organic vegetables, grass-fed beef, artisan breads, cheeses, honey, pies, plants, locally roasted coffee, milk, eggs and more every week. Our monthly Winter Market, though smaller in scale, has a similar choice of items.
