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.

Farmers Market

We had a very successful 2017 market season.  Montgomery residents enjoyed the freshest fruits and veggies and dayboat seafood as well as delicious locally-made foods, sauces, soups, pot pies, and desserts.  The season is over, but we’ll see you soon in June.

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 participating for 2017.    Now more than ever you can buy everything you need for your homemade meals.

To help out at the Farmers’ Market contact our Farmers’ Market Manager or use the signup form.

Get Involved

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.

  • Trail building and maintenance
