Top rated NJ farmers market will kick off the 2023 season this weekend
It’s always great to support local vendors, and what better way to do it than at a farmers’ market? Especially now that the weather is getting warmer.
The award-winning West Windsor Farmers’ Market is kicking off their 20th market season this Saturday, May 6.
From then until Thanksgiving, the market will be open every Saturday (rain or shine) from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Its location is the Lower Vaughn Lot at the Princeton Junction Train Station. Use the entrance at 877 Alexander Road.
Last year, they were named the No. 1 farmers’ market in New Jersey, and No. 4 in the nation.
According to the market’s manager:
There's really something for everyone to enjoy at the market - whether sitting and enjoying the music with a cup of coffee and a pastry, or dropping your knives off for sharpening while you run to get your weekly seasonal produce.
Fun fact - all our farms and vendors are from NJ with the exception of one mushroom grower from Kennett Square - they've been with us so long, they're grandfathered in!
Our mission is to support New Jersey farmers and connect the community to the folks who grow, raise and produce their food - and that we do.
It's sure to be a good time. How could you say "no" to local produce like this?
