Montgomery’s Farmers’ Market, an outreach of the Montgomery Friends of Open Space (Friends), features locally grown, conventional and certified organic produce, meats, eggs and other farm products. It will be held Saturdays from 9am until 1pm at the Village Shopper shopping center through October 24th.
Founded in 2003 to support agriculture in Montgomery and surrounding areas, the Farmers’ Market has grown from 5 vendors to 18 this year. Back this year are old favorites Treelicious Orchards and Orchard Farm Organics, who have been with us from the very beginning, but we also welcome PickleLicious from Teaneck, NJ, purveyor of house-made kosher pickles, olives, and other products.
Each year the Friends like to support an emerging farmer who is venturing into the farm market business. New for this year will be dried, organic herbs and herb teas from Fields Without Fences of Frenchtown. Next week, come ready for coffee as Benfatto Coffee of Hillsborough joins us as well. Some farmers are experiencing a delayed harvest and will join us in the coming weeks, but while we’re waiting for the sunflowers to bloom and cherries to ripen, there are plenty of delicious, fresh offerings.
