New! Uptown Farmer’s Market!

7/9/2009 Reminder:

Did you check out the new Farmers Market?

I swung by last week (as I mentioned in the comments section) – and one vendor of note was Hoboken Farms.

Yes – the looks are deceiving, since they have lots of carbs, and blobs of fresh Mozz – however, it’s a great addition to the standard fruits and veggies that other vendors are offering.

Hoboken Farms provide a wide selection of breads (from Balthazar’s and Hoboken’s own Dom’s Bakery) – along with other frozen or refrigerated items like crab cakes, fresh pasta and even meats you can grill.

If you’re dieting, the worst tent to get caught under during a rain storm was this one. But I’m still happy nonetheless!

Pay a visit today (starting at 4pm)!

7/2/2009 Update/Reminder:

Just a little “nudge” that the “new for 2009” Uptown Farmer’s Market begins TODAY!

Also – in speaking with Dave Calamoneri (who’s helped organize this event) – the streets were off by one block. The market will be setup along Hudson Street between 13th & 14th (not 12th & 13th). So if that extra block of walking will effect your health – consider yourself warned!

Uptowners: Less schlepping!

Hot on the heels of the 2009 Farmer’s Market downtown – is an exciting new addition this year. Uptown residents will be treated to a weekly Farmer’s Market as well!

Starting on Thursday, July 2nd – and continuing at least till the end of October, Hudson Street between 12th and 13th Streets will be transformed into an awesome market of fresh locally grown produce!

Not 100% sure how they pulled this off, as King’s Supermarket may take a bit of a beating on those days, but I doubt residents will complain (other than the lack of parking).

I think the 4-5 booths that are set up there have good quality produce and other food, and the prices are reasonable. I bought several things yesterday.

But to call it an “Uptown Market” is a little deceiving. To me, “market” implies something much larger than what is offered here…which isn’t to say that it’s not good…but folks expecting a full-blown market with lots of stands/choices aren’t really going to get that.
