Montgomery Farmers Market kicks off Saturday June 6

MFOSThe Montgomery Friends of Open Space proudly reopens their summer Farmer’s Market this weekend, for their thirteenth year. It will be held Saturdays from 9:00am until 1:00pm at the Village Shopper shopping center through October 24th. Founded in 2003 to support agriculture in Montgomery and surrounding areas, the Farmers’ Market has grown from 5 vendors to 18 this year. Back this year are old favorites Treelicious Orchards and Orchard Farm Organics, who have been with them from the very beginning, but they also welcome PickleLicious from Teaneck, NJ, purveyor of house-made kosher pickles, olives, and other products.

Here’s the 2015 Vendor list:

Brick Farm Market
Benfatti Coffee
Chickadee Creek Farm
Judith’s Dessert Boutique
Eat Local (Montgomery Friends)
Fields Without Fences
Fulper Farms
Griggstown Farm
Hot Sauce 4 Good
Little Island Restaurant
Nine Acres Farm
Orchard Farm Organics
PickleLicious
Suzy’s Wild Cooking
Terra Momo
Treelicious
Von Thun Farm
Woods Edge Wool Farms 

Each year the Friends like to support an emerging farmer who is venturing into the farm market business.  New for this year will be dried, organic herbs and herb teas from Fields Without Fences of Frenchtown.  Next week, come ready for coffee as Benfatto Coffee of Hillsborough joins us as well. (Some farmers are experiencing a delayed harvest so will participate in the coming weeks.)

Market Sponsors include Union Line Garage of Hopewell; Market Benefactor, Princeton Design Guild; Market Patron, Terra Momo Restaurant Group; Band Sponsors, Radiation Data, Princeton Orthopaedic Group, Lili B’s and 1st Constitution Bank of Rocky Hill, and individual contributors. If you would like to sponsor the Market, visit the Friends’ website for a sponsor form or go to the “Eat Local” table at the Market. Funds from sponsors help cover the cost of supplies, labor, special events, and shed maintenance.
