New Saturday Farmers’ Market for 2012

11/9/2012 Update: Back for another encore tomorrow, November 10th. Providing fresh food.

Hoboken Family Farmers’ Market begins

The summer of 2012 will go down in history as the best season ever for lovers of farmers’ markets. Because finally – some common sense was used to create a market that not only is more available to residents, but also incorporates “outside the box” thinking, such as events for kids, and even great prepared food!

So get some rest tonight – and welcome the newest farmers market in the mile square!

Hoboken “Family Farmers’ Market” at Garden Street Mews

4/5/2012:

Good news for those who often missed out on either weekday Farmers’ Markets in Hoboken each summer.

Beginning in June 2012, the new “pedestrian piazza” on Garden Street between 14th & 15th will become a Saturday Farmers’ Market!

The folks behind the Garden Street Mews are organizing this, and it’s a great way to enjoy the Jersey Fresh produce minus the post-commute stress.

On top of the usual fare at a typical farmers’ market, there are also plans for some kiddie activities as well as arts, crafts and music as well.

The market runs June 2nd through October 20th – from 9am to 2pm. (Which may not be ideal for those who drink themselves into oblivion on Friday nights, though…)

    This is a really great idea- can’t wait!

    Finally. What a good use of space.

  3. animal_lover says:

    That’s one tough area to make it across the street alive. As a matter of fact there is a little shrine w flowers for the person who was killed crossing 14th.

      I think that tragedy happened a little more east along 14th but, yes, the strip from Willow to Bloomfield needs a lot of work.

    *West, not east. Sorry.

    Live close by. Really looking forward to this. Super idea.

    It would be nice if the open space in front of the ferry terminal wasn’t used as a parking lot and was open to the public for the downtown farmer’s market. The sidewalk next to CVS is a crappy space for it. Could also be used for other fairs, festivals, etc. Regardless, it’s practically an eyesore right now.

    There is talk in the weather forecasts of severe thunderstorms for tomorrow (Sat) – does anyone know if the Farmer’s Market is rain or shine? Or will they postpone it if the rain is bad? Thanks.

    • FLoren says:

      Yes it’s definitely rain or shine — no postponement I believe, it’s scheduled for every Saturday[quote comment=”215856″]There is talk in the weather forecasts of severe thunderstorms for tomorrow (Sat) – does anyone know if the Farmer’s Market is rain or shine?

    i’m really looking forward to this…so much more convenient than thursday evenings

    Nice market, but a little pricey. There were lines for some of the vendors, food & beverages, so I didn’t get to try those. Couldn’t get near the pickle guy. I was able to get some nice cooking oils (now all I have to do is actually cook lmfao). Lots of people, pooches, kids, looked like everyone was having a great time (except possibly the really popular vendors who seemed a bit harried). Will be there next Saturday, but I will try to get down there earlier when maybe it won’t be so crowded.

    Really, the most vibrant market ever in Hoboken. Hope Anthony Davids figures out a way to make it more efficient. The girls working the register were not high caliber.

    While I love having the market here on the weekends, I agree that iit was very crowded. You also need to get there pretty early…..I got there at 11am, and a lot of the veggies had been picked over already. I think I will stick to the one I go to up in Jersey City Heights. Alstede Farms is up there, and they always have an abundance of produce. Plus, it never gets insanely crowded.

  12. Snip119 says:

    The girl at the cheese store counter wasn’t high caliber either, didn’t look up, just cut up cheese, yet there were no samples out. I stood there a few minutes, she never acknowledged me or tried to help me. A lost sale.

    We had wanted to try the food, but it was a long line, and it looked like all beverages, we couldn’t see anything involving food. It is just the first day, so I hope as the summer goes along the various vendors get their acts together. Its a tremendous selling opportunity if they have the right sales people, and if they are priced right in this economy. Just because something is labeled organic doesn’t mean people will pay any ridiculous price for it. I saw a lot of people picking things up and putting things back down when they saw the price.
