A Trip To Bountiful: Jersey Farmers’ Markets
Where farmers and shoppers meet, both benefit. Growers get a warm reception and a fair price, consumers unsurpassed quality and freshness—and a window into where our food comes from.
Farmers here hail from both sides of the Delaware. The products come from farms such as Gravity Hill, Purely, Tullamore and Storybook. The meats are all pasture raised and include many heritage breeds, and the fruit and produce is all raised on local farms. A carefully selected collection of artisans sell their baked goods, marmalades, pot pies and chocolates. The market also features a top-notch fishmonger, Metropolitan Seafood, a barbecue (Ron’s Barbecue); an artisanal ice cream maker (Half Pint Kitchens); and a cafe. Fridays, 3–7 pm; Saturdays, 9 am–4 pm; Sundays, 10 am–4 pm; 19 Bridge St.
