The Downtown Millburn, NJ Farmers Market

Friday, June 8th marked the seasonal opening of the Downtown Millburn, NJ Farmers Market.  The farmers market is located in the Essex Street Municipal Lot and will run every Friday until October 19th.  Farmers markets are on the rise and allow people to enjoy food native to their region.  Many people seek out local food in order to know where their food is coming from and support the local economy.

The Downtown Millburn, NJ Farmers Market is open from 8 am to 3 pm every Friday.  There you can find organic, locally-grown produce for sale, gourmet chefs doing demonstrations and providing tastings, local community organizations such as the Millburn Library giving out information, and more.  Here is a small sampling of who you can expect to find at the farmers market:

Alstede Farms
Alstede Farms is located in Chester, NJ.  They come each week selling fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers. Berries are popular items in the month of June and they currently have strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, currants, and blueberries.

Dr. Pickle 
Dr. Pickle is New Jersey company that sells "the best pickle and pepper products" on the market.  They also sell pickled green tomatoes, giardiniera, marinated mushrooms, olives, sauerkraut, and more.

Paolo's Kitchen
Paolo's Kitchen serves up their healthy, home-cooked Italian meals every week.  Enjoy their handmade ravioli, mozzarella, and more.

There are several more vendors in addition to these three examples.  If you have not yet been to the Downtown Millburn, NJ Farmers Market, I recommend it.  Also, feel free to contact me with any questions about the community, or about buying or selling homes in the area.  Have a great week and happy first day of summer!
