Hoboken Farmers’ Market 2008
The Hoboken Farmers Market will be going through at least the last Tuesday in October. It’s quite possible that, like last year (and depending on weather & crops), that we could again see the market open until the middle of November! Running time is 3pm – 7:30pm Tuesdays.
Hoboken employee Dave Calamoneri said that as long as they get four vendors to setup – the market will be open!
The owner of Melicks’ Town Farm (Oldwick, NJ) said that the peaches and tomatoes are particularly ripe and tasty today, so grab your Jersey Fresh fruits and veggies while you can!

Here’s a city press release about the annual Farmers’ Market which starts NEXT Tuesday. You can also read about what vendors might be there from this post from last year.
A dozen years of fresh food
In its twelfth year this year, the Hoboken Farmers’ Market is located on Washington St. between Newark St. and Observer Hwy. The market opens on June 24th and runs through October on Tuesdays from 3:00 to 7:30PM
The Hoboken Farmer’s Market serves three purposes. It helps small farmers in New Jersey sell their produce, by giving them a venue they would otherwise not have. Local fresh fruits and vegetables are brought to the residents of Hoboken by the people that actually harvest them. And last but certainly not least the Hoboken Farmer’s Market has served as a gathering place for the community, where people exchange smiles, thoughts, and recipes.
“If you don’t get it locally, you just don’t get it.”
– David Calamoneri, Manager of the Hoboken Farmers’ Market
