Montgomery Friends of Open Space (MFOS) is a nonprofit all-volunteer organization formed in March 2002. Our main goals are to preserve remaining open land in Montgomery Township, to act as stewards for the properties already preserved, and to run a farmers’ market to support local agriculture. Our township’s population has doubled in the past 15 years. By working hard to protect the remaining open land, we hope to achieve a better balance between growth and preservation.
The 2017 MFOS farmers’ market is open! The market runs every Saturday from June through October from 9 am to 1 pm. By offering fresh, locally grown produce, poultry, organic vegetables, herbs, flowers, salsa, fresh bread, and more, MFOS is supporting local farmers and New Jersey agriculture. Visit the market vendor page to see the list of Farmers/Vendors Returning for 2017. New this year: We’re excited to have dayboat seafood, handmade curries and sauces, and gluten-free bread. Now more than ever you can buy everything you need for your homemade meals.
People have fun when they participate in our events and projects. Meeting new people, or being with friends, working on something together is both rewarding and enjoyable. One can do a little or a lot. Tell us what you are interested in, and how much time you have available, and we’ll fit you in.
