Don’t Miss HLT’s
Winter Farmers’ Market


The Hunterdon Land Trust’s winter Farmers’ Market kicks off its fourth season on Sunday, Dec. 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Dvoor Farm, 111 Mine St. off the route 12 circle in Raritan Township.

The winter market will be held the third Sunday of every month in HLT’s new rustic classroom that was once a wagon shed on the Dvoor Farm. Winter market dates for 2016 will be: Jan. 17, Feb. 21, March 20 and April 17. If inclement weather occurs on the third Sunday, the market will be rescheduled for the following week. However, if the March 20 market is canceled, there will be no market that month since March 27 is Easter Sunday.

  • Apple Ridge Farm – artisan breads and pastries.
  • Comeback Farm – organic vegetables.
