This Farmers’ Market Is Shaping Up
To Be ‘Berry’ Special

It’s strawberry season at our Farmers’ Market! You are going to be amazed at these beautiful strawberries, fresh-picked and bursting with flavor. Whether you eat them unadorned, drizzled with a little balsamic or in the tasty dessert suggested below, you will marvel at the difference local food makes! Besides being super delicious, strawberries are loaded with antioxidants and are pretty darn good for your ticker too!

Stop by the Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers’ Market at the Dvoor Farm Sunday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. for strawberries and much more including steaks, artisanal sausages, chicken, pies, honey, bread, cheese, freshly ground spices, native plants and much more.

Here’s a few other notes about our next market:
