Encouraging Residents to Visit Area Farmers Markets; Support NJ Farmers

To the Editor:

I am writing to encourage Princeton area residents to visit the Princeton Farmers Market, now relocated to the Dinky Train Station lot. Market hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., every Thursday until Thanksgiving, rain or shine. As always, the market offers an incredible array of fruits, vegetables, meats, prepared foods, flowers, and other essentials.

If the time and/or location do not suit your schedule, please consider visiting the West Windsor Farmers Market, which is held every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the lower Vaughn lot at the Princeton Junction Train Station. 

Although many of us have now returned to regular supermarket shopping, we should not forget that local farmers played a key role in sustaining our community during the pandemic. They did so not only by selling fresh food outside — even during winter — but by adopting new online purchasing systems and delivery services to meet customers’ needs.

So let’s return the favor and support New Jersey’s farmers, who work hard every day to keep some “garden” in the Garden State!
