Downtown Hoboken Farmers Market 2010
Don’t forget the 2010 Downtown Farmers’ Market is in full effect on Washington, south of Newark street until 7:30pm tonight. Farm fresh fruit, vegetables plus breads, pickles, flowers and more!
Do the Cake Boss lines have any effect?
I spoke with a few vendors down at the Farmers Market today – and got some mixed results regarding the two to three hour wait on Carlo’s Bakery lines in front of the market.
Wondering if the steady flow of out-of-towners would help – one vendor said that the “distraction” the Cake Boss lines are causing – is keeping locals away from the market. While another said he was unsure – agreeing that local traffic is down, but noted that he’s gotten “a few” sales from customers obviously more interested in cake and carbs than healthy and fresh.
Regardless – swing down and support Jersey Fresh!
Locally fresh produce Downtown Hoboken each Tuesday
This year’s Downtown Hoboken Farmers Market (Washington Street between Observer and Newark) begins today, Tuesday, June 29th.
14 Years Strong!
In its fourteenth year this year, the Hoboken Farmers’ Market is located on Washington St. between Newark St. and Observer Hwy. The market opens on June 26th 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.”
