Bordentown City Farmer's Market - every Wednesday thru October 27th

Last week kicked off the Bordentown Farmers Market, and even though there was some rain, it didn’t scare off the local farmers and other vendors from bringing out their goods, and it also didn’t scare off the local patrons.  When I stopped by not even an hour into the market, they had already had over 100 visitors, so kudos to the locals for supporting a local resource, even during the not so pleasant weather.  Thanks also to the vendors for wandering out in the rain to bring their local goods to a great little community.

The Bordentown Farmers Market started last summer, and will run this summer from June 9th – October 27th, every Wednesday, rain or shine, from 4PM to Dusk.  The Farmers Market is located in the Bordentown City Parking lot next to and behind The Farnsworth House Restaurant, located at 135 Farnsworth Avenue in charming Bordentown City, NJ.

Local farmers will be there selling their locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, but there will also be other vendors as well, selling anything from organic meat, grass fed beef, pork, lamb, artisan cheeses, fresh free range eggs, local honey, pies, breads, jams, alpaca clothing items, etc.  Last year, I made it a point to pick up Stromboli’s and other stuffed breads from a bakery that was there, and he had other great items as well.  This year, also look for fresh ice cream, and Oliver – A Bistro has even talked about selling their burrito’s, freshly made right there on the grill. It doesn’t get any better than that.

With that being said, check it out on Wednesday’s when you get a chance, as I know that we will.  I look forward to stopping by today, even though it might be a few minutes out of my way.  Maybe we’ll see some of you there!  Cheers!  -F. Scott

Below is an e-mail I just received from the Deputy Mayor of Bordentown City:

We are heading into the second week of the farmers market and yes they are predicting a bit of rain, but the show will go on!

Please spread the word that the farmers market will happen today. The market starts at 4pm and will go til dusk, but feel free to stop by a bit before 4 if need be because the farmers are always willing to sell.

Last week we had a steady rain and cold chill to welcome the market but we still had over 250 people stop by, so please help us beat that number and join us today. The market is located in the city parking lot next to the Farnsworth House.

In addition to the several farmers who will sell produce, eggs, meats and bread we will have Jim Downey showcasing his arts and Beanwood with their famous empandas and Mango icetea.

Come on out, what is a little rain(and maybe a little thunder:)
