Last two WWCFM Farmers Markets coming up.

IMG_8267The final two West Windsor Community Farmers Market indoor markets will take place on Saturday, March 4 and April 1 at the Windsor Athletic Club located at 99 Clarksville Road in West Windsor. Market hours are 10am-1pm.

The WWCFM outdoor markets begin at the Vaughn Drive lot on Saturday, May 6. Weekly markets run from 9am-1pm. Local farms and vendors, live music, community groups, cooking demonstrations and an overwhelming community spirit make the outdoor markets a must-do on Saturday mornings.

The WWCFM accepts SNAP/EBT for authorized food items.

“Many of our produce farms utilize hoop houses to grow fresh greens over the winter and have cold storage for apples, root crops and squash,” says Market Manager, Chris Cirkus. “Our other farms raise hens for beautiful pastured eggs, grass-fed beef, whey-fed pork, happy chickens plus craft the most delicious cheeses,” continued Cirkus. “New Jersey’s wide variety of agriculture is prevalent at our market with seafood from the Jersey coast and wine made from New Jersey grapes. Artisan food producers round out the market roster with offerings such as locally milled grain pasta, seasonally produced jams, pickles and sauces, New Jersey tomato ketchup, grain/gluten/refined sugar-free baked treats and crispy, crunchy breads and sweet donuts. All of the WWCFM farms and vendors are from within approximately 50-miles of West Windsor, keeping food hyper local and fresh.”

March music will be performed by Dark Whiskey, featuring WWCFM board member, Gretchen Jaeckel.

One thought on “Last two WWCFM Farmers Markets coming up.

  1. What a treasure trove, Faith! How lucky we are to live in a region where (1) brilliant, committed people create farm markets for our communities and (2) everyone ‘gets on board’ week after week, even in winter. Thank you for always keeping us aware of causes, as well as of food itself. Blessings, c
