In addition to its mouthwatering produce, the Metuchen Farmers Market serves as an educational hub, offering workshops and resources that educate the public about the importance of environmentally friendly farming practices, healthy eating choices, and the benefits of supporting local businesses. It acts as a melting pot for diverse cultural backgrounds, bringing people together through a shared passion for food.
The market is affiliated with the New Jersey Council of Farmers & Communities (NJCFC), a collaboration that amplifies its efforts in promoting sustainable agriculture and fostering a sense of community among residents. With each purchase, visitors contribute directly to the growth of the local economy and the well-being of farmers who pour their heart and soul into cultivating the land.
New Jersey farmers grow well more than 100 varieties of fruits and vegetables, ranging from the most common everyday shopping-cart items to more exotic Asian, Caribbean and European varieties, as well as organic. On average, the food travels no more than 50 miles from where it was grown. The Metuchen Farmers Market provides easy and convenient access to a variety of this local produce.
“The Metuchen Farmers Market has always been dedicated to nourishing the community with the freshest and most flavorsome produce from our local farmers,” said Joseph Mikulewicz, President of NJCFC. “By choosing to shop here, customers not only indulge in the finest farm-to-table experiences but also actively support our dedicated farmers and reduce the environmental impact of long-distance food transportation.”
