This Week at the Market:
In addition to all of our wonderful regular vendors, here's who will be at the market this week:
Part Time vendor: Mark and Joanne from Live Love Granola will be back with their all-natural granolas in both paleo and traditional styles.
Artisans: Sunrise Mountain Soaps returns with their famous hand made soaps. Also discover unique, hand sewn items from Handmade by Cindy Lou
Bruce and Theresa from ARTwood will be joining us for the first time this week. They use wood that has been felled by nature to create into beautiful pieces of art, trays, vases, candlesticks and more. Much of the wood they use came down in Hurricane Sandy. Ask them about the story of each piece.
Musician: This week we welcome vocalist, music arranger and acoustic guitarist Marji Zintz to the market. Read more about Marji on our blog!
Nonprofit: Food and Water Watch is a 501c3 that champions healthy food and clean water for all. They stand up to corporations that put profits before people, and advocate for a democracy that improves people's lives and protects our environment.
Peace and Carrots Farm will bring more romaine lettuce, radishes and kale this week.
Vernon Valley Farm will be back with snap peas. Alec will be happy to tell you all about their varieties of radishes from French breakfast to black Spanish round radishes.
Some of our farmers said they may also have beets depending on the weather.
Ross at Pie Eyed Bar Pies will be highlighting his chicken, veggie, and sausage rolls this week.
Meanwhile, Healthy Thymes will sample Dani's unchicken salad. You can't tell it's not chicken!
Lynn from Rose Mountain Chocolate will also be returning to the market, and will continue to join us long as the weather isn't too hot for her little beauties.
Snoep Winkel Farm recently had a chicken butchering, and will be bringing whole chickens, half chickens, breasts and legs--perfect for grilling!
We have an interesting new farmer joining us who sells micro greens. Stop by his booth and find out what they are.
Music at the Market
This project is funded, in part, by the Passaic County Cultural and Heritage Council at Passaic County Community College, through a grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts / Department of the State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts. PCCHC Information
We have a wonderful market volunteer, Bernie Stapleton, who brings us a fantastic line up of local musicians each year at the market. Thank you, Bernie!!!!
We Accept SNAP
We are now accepting SNAP EBT cards for purchases of fresh produce and freshly prepared foods. Stop by the Market tent and we will explain how.
We received a grant from The USDA and Garden State Good Food (administered by City Green), to double your SNAP dollars. We hope this will be a way to help our fellow market shoppers who use these resources, to be able to buy fresh, healthful, and locally-sourced, fruits and vegetables. Thanks to all who made this possible.
A big thank you to our Market sponsors, who have committed to help make the Market possible in 2016 (more to come)!
Fuzzy friends cannot walk through the market due to Board of Health regulations so please plan accordingly.
Volunteers: Much Needed and Always Welcome!
