This year, the Farmers’ Market introduced a Second Sunday Series featuring themed programs. We hope you join us on Nov. 12 for health day. On Nov. 19, HLT will host its annual holiday market.

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.

 

 

Winter Farmers’ Market Schedule

Who says you can’t find great local food in the winter?

The Hunterdon Land Trust’s winter Farmers’ Market kicks off its sixth year on Sunday, Dec. 3 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Dvoor Farm, 111 Mine St. in Raritan Township. The market is held in our wagon house.

The winter Farmers’ Market runs on the first and third Sundays of each month, December through mid-May from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in our wagon house. Other dates are: Dec. 17, Jan. 7 and 21, Feb. 4 and 18, March 4 and 18, April 15, and May 6. (There is no market on Easter Sunday, April 1.)

Shoppers are encouraged to visit this website or Facebook page in case inclement weather forces the market to be canceled.

This year, shoppers will find more than a dozen local farmers and vendors at the market. While most vendors will attend the market throughout the winter, a few will appear on specific market dates.

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.
