: It's Jersey Fresh at the Jersey Shore!

It's Jersey Fresh at the Jersey Shore!

Summer is the best time to live at the Jersey Shore, or anywhere in New Jersey for that matter.  Forget the humidity and frequent weather changes, it's Jersey Fresh!

Jersey Fresh logoThe Jersey Fresh Campaign, initiated several years ago by the New Jersey Department of Agriculture, promotes local farmers and local produce!  

While there are still many farm stands, a joint effort by municipalities and the Ag Department has brought Jersey Fresh products to central locations in many southern Ocean County communities weekly.

  • Jersey PeachesWaretown, NJ Jersey Fresh  On Tuesday afternoon's (12noon - 5pm)through September local growers gather to sell corn, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, peaches, blueberries and everything Jersey Fresh!  Fresh baked items and crafts are also available.  The market is located at Waretown Lake on Wells Mill Road.
  • Barnegat, NJ Jersey Fresh  On Thursday afternoon's (12noon - 5pm) at the Township Clock across from the Cox House, the intersection of Route 9 and East Bay Avenue.
  • Manahawkin, NJ Jersey Fresh  On Friday, Saturday and Sunday's from 9am til mid afternoon at the Manahawkin Flea Market on East Bay Avenue across from the Motor Vehicle Office.
  • Tuckerton, NJ Jersey Fresh  On Saturday's from 10am til 2pm at the Tuckerton Seaport on Route 9 across from Lake Pohatcong. 

If you need a Jersey Fresh fix on days these municipal markets aren't open, try Herbert's Farm Market on Route 9 in Waretown. They're open 6 days, but closed on Monday.  

Just south in Tuckerton/Little Egg Harbor, I get my Jersey Fresh fix at the B & B Market, 198 Main Street (Route 9) just south of Great Bay Boulevard on the left.  It's open daily!

Why buy Jersey Fresh?  In most cases it's the distribution advantage...produce can be picked, packaged, delivered, purchased and on your table within a day or two!

So what's for dinner?

There is nothing better than farm fresh fruits and vegetables.

Great job letting the masses know where to find it in your neck of the woods.

I went to our local farmer's market yesterday to grab a few veggies. Anytime I can support the local folks, I consider it a good thing.

I love my local farmers market. I also grow my own heirloom tomatoes and peppers and some Maui Onions. I just realized I have salsa in my backyard! Thanks for the post!!
