What’s Happening at Our Sunday Farmers’ Market


You’ll find the freshest, best-tasting food at the Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers’ Market.

That’s because your neighborhood farmers pick their produce at its peak – crisp and loaded with flavor and nutrition – just before the short trip to our market. The bread is freshly baked; the cheese is hand-crafted; the beef, chicken and pork are all-natural, antibiotic and hormone free.

And, this Sunday, we’ll have delicious strawberries fresh picked and bursting with flavor. Make sure to stop by and pick up a few quarts!

Join us this Sunday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Dvoor Farm, 111 Mine St. in Raritan Township. Support your neighborhood farmers and local economy, while getting wholesome delicious food.

Product of the Week

WoodsEdge Farm honey

When we chatted with the folks at WoodsEdge Farm at our market recently, they said “Raw honey is definitely the way to go.”

And we couldn’t agree more!

Most of the honey you’ll find in stores has been heated and pasteurized, a process that destroys enzymes and the beneficial compounds that make raw honey so nutritious. Regular honey often looks clear and syrupy. Raw honey has not been treated with heat; it is left in its natural state and therefore contains pollen, enzymes, antioxidants and many other beneficial compounds that researchers are just beginning to learn about.

Some research indicates that local honey — obtained as close as possible to where you live — may help build an immunity to some seasonal allergies. And you can’t find honey that’s any more local — or better tasting — than what WoodsEdge offers at our market. Make sure to pick some up on Sunday when you shop with us!

Now, here’s a recipe that’s truly buzz worthy . . . that has both honey and strawberries!

Spinach Salad with Strawberries, Honey Dressing and Honeyed Pecans

What You’ll Need:

1 (6-oz.) package baby spinach
1 cup quartered fresh strawberries
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
Honey Dressing
3 to 4 cooked bacon slices, crumbled
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
Honeyed Pecans

What To Do:

Toss together first 4 ingredients and 1/3 cup dressing. Sprinkle with bacon, cheese, and pecans. Serve with remaining dressing.

Music

Singer/guitarist Michael Long returns to our Farmers’ Market on Sunday. He will entertain you with songs from a number of genres. Enjoy his music along with a tasty snack or while enjoying a game of horseshoes or cornhole. It’s going to be a relaxing, fun morning at the Farmers’ Market!
