Market Season Begins!

It's Farmers' Market season in Jersey City! This weekend, Van Vorst Park and Riverview Market are kicking off the first Farmers' Markets of the season.

The market at Van Vorst starts Saturday morning at 8:30am and will run until about 3pm. This year, they're anticipating having their regular farmers with fresh produces, eggs, cheese, flowers, honey, and more as well as Hoboken Farms with lots of prepared specialties and breads, and X-Calibur for all your knife sharpening needs and they'll be welcoming O'LaLa Empanadas, a specialty high-end meat supplier, Bucket & Bay gelato, specialty pickle and olive oil vendors, and a fresh juice stand along with much more. Spending Saturday morning wandering through the beautiful Van Vorst Park is a great way to enjoy the weekend - especially with some modcup, another vendor at the market, in hand.

The Riverview Market will be held on Sunday between 10am-3pm For those who haven't been, the Riverview market is excellent - small enough that you feel you have plenty of time to browse through each stand but with enough variety to get everything you need (and just some stuff you want). They also often have yoga classes, activities for kids, and it really feels community-oriented. It's also right across the street from modcup and has a great view.

Each year, the market seems to get bigger and better and this year is no exception. They'll be carrying fresh produce,  very locally made honey, veggie burgers, dog treats, clothes, art, granola, baked goods and lots more. Here's the full list of vendors. They'll also have food trucks regularly visiting the market including El Chilango and this Sunday to start the season off well, the Incrediballs truck!

Happy Farmers' Market season Jersey City! Eat healthy and happy.
