Hoboken Farmer’s Market 2009

7/7/2009 Reminder:

Get your fresh fruit and veggies today!

Don’t forget to swing by the downtown Hoboken Farmer’s Market today after work (or anytime after 3pm for those that are unemployed …)

I took this photo last week – and don’t be surprised that there are few, if any cherries left. I heard that the brutal rain during the month of June “damaged” much of the cherry crop – and supply was limited.

I did, however, taste those bright red “sour cherries,” and they were AWESOME!

6/30/2009 Reminder:

Don’t forget – the Downtown Farmer’s Market starts today around 3pm!

6/15/2009:

Yay – locally fresh produce!

This year’s Hoboken Farmers Market (Washington Street between Observer and Newark) begins Tuesday, June 30th!

13 Years Strong!

In its thirteenth year this year, the Hoboken Farmers’ Market is located on Washington St. between Newark St. and Observer Hwy. The market opens on June 30th 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

I know it rained but I was bummed with the offerings at the Farmers Market. There was very little, if any, fruit. And most of prices were identical from table to table. While the raspberries looked freshly picked (and were double the cost of berries bought at Garden of Eden), the blueberries looked like the ones you’d find at the supermarket. I bought two cartons anyway (at $1 more) and they didn’t taste very good.

So…..my first review is “eh.” I’m all for supporting local farmers but when its more expensive & doesn’t taste as good….

The reason why I go out of my way to patronize the Route 17 Farmers Market is the food is ABSURDLY cheap and tastes amazing.

Think uptown Farmers Market will be any better?

It is little early in the growing season for local fruit to be ready for market, hopefully the market will get better.

I’m looking forward to the start of The Farmer’s Market tonight. I have the best of both worlds. I live on 13th st. I walk home from The Path Station. I’ll get to the downtown one tonight. I’ll get to the uptown one on Thursday. It would be good if the vendors were different.

Their produce isn’t cheap but it’s really great. For $20, I wind up buying way more stuff than I would at King’s.
