The Farmers’ Market also provides a boost to the local economy, according to a survey conducted by the nonprofit group Market Umbrella. In 2016, the market had a combined economic impact of $3.1 million on its vendors, host neighborhood and surrounding region.

Most farmers accept credit cards and several other honor WIC and the Seniors Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program. Parking is free and easily accessible.

So, why does a Land Trust run a farmers’ market? Because buying local keeps family farmers in business and farmland intact.

Farmers MarketThe 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.
