Jersey City Farmer’s Market Roundup

The season is finally here for farmer’s markets in Jersey City! I’m obviously over the moon about this and you should be, too! Fresh fruits and vegetables, delectable baked goods…even knife sharpening. It’s all back! The glorious days of farmer’s markets usually begin in May, but this year there are some markets opening earlier. Hamilton Park’s market opens today! Check out what will be open where and when. Stay tuned, as some information will be updated in coming weeks. Happy shopping!
