Winter Farmers’ Market Hours

Fresh, local foodStarting Sunday December 16th you can get the freshest, locally-grown food bursting with flavor at the headquarters of the Hunterdon Land Trust, The Historic Dvoor Farm on the Route 12 Circle in Flemington. The Winter Farmers’ Market will be open the third Sunday of the month from 11 am to 1 pm until April.

“Some people in Hunterdon County still recall when the Dvoor Brothers sold livestock from the farm” says Patricia Ruby, the Executive Director of the Hunterdon Land Trust. “It’s great to see this iconic property continue to play a central role in our agricultural community as the Land Trust supports family farms not only by preserving farmland but also through our market. We are very excited to welcome three new farmers to the Winter Farmers’ Market this year.  Apple Ridge Farms will be selling their artisan bread, Fulper Farm will have locally produced cheese, and Sandbrook Meadow Farm will offer organic produce. We are also welcoming The Coffee Scoop who will have hot drinks to warm up chilly days.”

Returning for the second year of the Winter Farmers’ Market are Comeback Farm with seasonal, organic vegetables, Griggstown Quail Farm selling eggs, poultry, sausages, savory and fruit pies,  Headquarters Farm offering locally raised lamb and fleeces, Milford Farm with beef and pork, Purely Farm selling pork and eggs, Tassot Apiary with local raw honey, pure beeswax candles, natural handcrafted soaps and more, Toadshade Wildflower Farm offering Native Plant Seeds, Wildflower Teas, Black Walnuts, and Wildflower Notecards, Tullamore Farm selling beef and eggs, Villa Milagro Vineyards with locally produced fine European-style blended wines, and Woods Edge Wool selling llama and alpaca fleeces, rovings, yarns, socks, gloves, scarves, mittens, hats, shawls, rugs, and handmade soaps.

Market manager Catherine Suttle says “Hunterdon shoppers have many choices nowadays for where they can buy fresh food, from local farmers’ markets and artisan food markets to the big chain grocers. The Hunterdon Land Trust’s Winter Farmers’ Market is part of our commitment to supporting local farms and farmers, safeguarding our rural way of life, and ensuring access to local food.  Since we first opened our summer market in 2007, we have been impressed by the enthusiasm of our farmers for the market and encouraged by the strength of the community’s support.  We hope to see you at the winter market this year.”
