In its thirteenth year this year, the Hoboken Farmers’ Market is located on Washington St. between Newark St. and Observer Hwy. The downtown market opens on June 30th and runs through October on Tuesdays from 3:00 to 7:30PM
It will be its first year this year, for the Uptown Farmer’s Market which will be located on Hudson St. between 12th & 13th Street. The uptown market opens on July 2nd and runs through October on Thursdays from 3:00 to 7:30PM
The Hoboken Farmer’s Market serves three purposes. It helps small farmers in New Jersey sell their produce, by giving them a venue they would otherwise not have. Local fresh fruits and vegetables are brought to the residents of Hoboken by the people that actually harvest them. And last but certainly not least the Hoboken Farmer’s Market has served as a gathering place for the community, where people exchange smiles, thoughts, and recipes.
“If you don’t get it locally, you just don’t get it.”
David Calamoneri, Manager of the Hoboken Farmers’ Market
Discount coupons will be available in June for Hoboken residents who are income eligible Medicaid or PAAD recipients. Eligible residents may obtain four $5 coupons from the Senior Citizen Office at 124 Grand Street.
“New Jersey offers a bounty of some of the finest and freshest produce to be found anywhere. I am pleased that the coupons will allow income eligible residents the ability to purchase even more of the fresh fruit, vegetables and baked goods found in the state,” Mayor Dawn Zimmer said.
