FARM FRESH: This is a producer-only market. Everything is super-fresh, and we save energy by emphasizing local and area farmers and vendors. Michael (Mikey) Azzara, manager of the Lawrenceville Farmers Market, is shown at the market on Gordon Avenue.
Local farmers markets are popping up like flowers in spring. With increasing consumer interest in healthy organic foods, sustainable farms and agriculture, and now worry over high energy costs, buying local is the way to go.
Local farmers markets have grown from 40 in 2000 to 103 in 2007, according to the New Jersey Department of Agriculture. Every county in the state has at least one weekly community farmers market, and more are being launched all the time.
