You’ll find organic vegetables, all-natural chicken and pork, artisan breads, cheeses, honey, pies, plants, locally roasted coffee, milk, eggs and more.
This year, the Farmers’ Market will feature a weekly fun activity for children. On every second Sunday of the month, it’ll have a variety of programs celebrating families, local history, nature and the environment, local artists and artisans, and food and health. There’s also live music every week, yoga for nine Sundays starting May 20. Check the HLT website for yoga schedule.
So, why does a Land Trust run a farmers’ market? Because buying local keeps family farmers in business and farmland intact.
The Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers’ Market was started in 2007 to provide local farmers a place to sell their products directly to consumers. Though modest at first, it has blossomed over the years into a highly anticipated community event that routinely attracts more than a thousand customers to the historic Dvoor Farm every Sunday from May to November.
By operating a producers’-only Farmers’ Market, we ensure that farmers and vendors sell items which they have themselves grown, raised or produced. This is important to guaranteeing authenticity, quality, and freshness, and to knowing the farmer who grows or raises your food.
