Hoboken Uptown Farmers Market “Jersey Fresh”

“Sometimes it’s hard to believe that New Jersey is known as the Garden State when you live in the middle of an urban jungle. The Hoboken Uptown Farmers’ Market, in conjunction with The Quality of Life Coalition, will be arriving soon, with proof in the form of strawberries, sweet corn, and those famous Jersey tomatoes.”

Hoboken Uptown Farmers Market 2014Running through October, the market is open Thursdays from 3pm to 7:30pm.

It appears they got rid of the earlier start time from last year. But I wonder why they can’t go till 8pm or 9pm for those who have later work hours.

The location at the corner of 13th & Hudson Streets ensures that residents of uptown Hoboken and beyond will have an opportunity to load up on some freshly picked salad greens for Thursday night’s dinner or a scrumptious blueberry pie for the weekend barbecue.

Vendors for the 2014 Hoboken Uptown Farmers’ Market

Alan’s Flower Farm, of Chesterfield, NJ will be at the market each week with fresh cut flowers and produce from his farm. Additionally, market-goers can look forward to live demonstrations and veggie education from Hoboken’s own Skinny Chef, Jennifer Iserloh, on the third Thursday of each month. On the final Thursday of each month, Hobokenites can bring their dull kitchen knifes to the market, where Neil’s Sharpening Service will revive the blades to full tomato slicing capacity.

Other vendors include Stony Hill Farms of Chester, Gina’s Bakery of Montclair, Hoboken Farms, and customer favorite, Dr. Pickle, who will happily give customers a sample of any of his briny, delicious olives, roasted peppers and pickles, of course! As a certified “Jersey Fresh” market, the customer can be assured that the fresh produce is grown right here in New Jersey.

As in years past, the market is committed to helping our neighbors in Hoboken who have limited access to fresh fruits and vegetables. At the end of each day, vendors are encouraged to donate leftover produce to the Hoboken Shelter, which is celebrating its thirtieth year of service to our community. Additionally, eligible customers are welcome to use WIC (Women, Infants & Children Program) coupons with participating vendors.

Remember – shopping at a Farmers’ Market is great for the local economy and your health. Now, more than ever, it is important to support the New Jersey economy. Shop Jersey Fresh!
