Farmers Market Report

The Red Bank Farmers Market was going strong on Sunday. We got organically-grown asparagus, first-pick Jersey strawberries, organic arugula, scallions, and fresh eggs.

I also saw bok choy, salad mix, radishes. Lots of plants. The usual bread and cheeses vendors. The Twisted Tree Cafe (of AP) has a booth and I got some vegan white bean soup. Really delicious.

Red Bank Market is in the Galleria parking lot on Bridge St, Sundays about 8:30-2ish.

Starting June 5th... in West End Long Branch there will be a market behind Jessie's Cafe on thursdays, 12-6. Farmer Ed (ER and Sons) will be selling their excellent organically-grown produce.

      Thanks for mentioning the TR Farmers Market. I have always wanted to go there but for the life of me never seem to get there. Is it located in Huddy Park? Do u know the hours of operation. Also is there parking available?

      Thanks in advance for the info

        Babs - The TR Farmers Market is in fact in the parking lot adjacent to Huddy Park and the hours are Noon to 6 pm (but most of the good stuff is gone and some vendors leave by 4 pm). Good Luck.

        The Farmer's Market at Dvoor Farm has officially opened for the season today. There weren't a whole lot of vendors this early in the season, but we bought some beautiful radishes and strawberries, bread and cheese from Bobolink, and honey from Tassot. I love this time of year! :)
