West Windsor Community Farmers Market opens May 2

They’re baaaack!

Held every Saturday from 9:00am-1:00pm, rain or shine, the West Windsor Community Farmers Market (WWCFM) is proud to kick off its twelfth season on Saturday, May 2. (The last one is on the Saturday before Thanksgiving.)  From their release:

IMG_1021With 15 farms and 11 artisan food and natural product vendors, the Market is well known for its wide array of locally grown (conventional and organic) seasonal fruit, vegetables, and mushrooms: pasture raised and produced grass-fed meats (beef, lamb, pork, poultry, yak), dairy (cheese, yogurt), and farm fresh eggs.  Woven fibers, breads and baked goods, flowers and plants, honey, prepared foods, sauces, jams, pickled vegetables, wine and more can be found at the market each week.  The WWCFM’s mission to connect farmers directly with consumers is as relevant today as it was when the market began in 2004.

This year’s line up brings two new vendors to the marketplace, both sourcing local ingredients in their offerings: The Feed Truck of Kingston (www.thefeedtruck.org) prepares breakfast sandwiches, and LiLLiPies of Princeton (www.lillipies.com) crafts small batch baked goods.  The ever popular Jammin’ Crepes and Tico’s Juice Truck will continue to supply market patrons with fresh and delicious choices.   The WWCFM continues to be the place to spend time on Saturday mornings; stroll around to enjoy the weekly live music, cooking demonstrations, special events and community groups.  Weekly knife and blade sharpening by Nice and Sharp and bi-weekly massage by The Touch That Heals both begin May 2.

The Market is located in the Vaughn Drive Parking Lot of the southbound side of the Princeton Junction Train Station, one mile from the Alexander Road and Route 1 intersection or half a mile walk down Vaughn Drive from the Dinky stop.  Plenty of free parking for cars and bicycles.IMG_4606

Since 2012, the WWCFM has been voted the annual Top Celebrated Market in New Jersey and a Top 100 Most Celebrated Market Nationwide, in American Farmland Trust’s I Love My Farmers Market Contest.

Up-to-date weekly events can be found on our website: westwindsorfarmersmarket.org.  For more information, call 609 933-4452 or email wwcfm@yahoo.com.  Be sure to follow the market on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for timely market info and photos.
