WEST ORANGE, NJ - Under sunny skies, the West Orange Farmers Market opened for business at the corner of Eagle Rock Avenue and Main Street.

The Quigley parking lot was a sea of tents as vendors set up for their Friday afternoon sales. Returning was Valley View Farms who were featuring their fresh mid-summer produces including cherries, squash, and the first of what appeared to be a bumper crop of tomatoes.

Gourmet Nuts and Dried Fruits, another popular vendor, has also returned.

New vendors included Hoboken Farms, who offer freshly baked breads and prepared foods, and Ashea Natural Body Products, offering organic shampoos, oils, scents, cleansers and more.

Local businesses like Regal Bank and  Doctor's Express Urgent Care were there to show support by offering giveaways, free blood pressure screenings, and water.

Look for weekly surprises, including visits from the West Orange Public Library, arts and crafts, special displays, and additional vendors to join forces with the West Orange Farmers Market, sponsored and organized by the Downtown West Orange Alliance.

The West Orange Arts Council will be spending some time at the market to share their efforts to develop the Arts in town. WOAC would like to remind residents that there are free passes to the Montclair Art Museum available at the Library, purchased by WOAC for all to enjoy at no cost.

Tap Into West Orange will provide updates on the Farmers Market special events and new vendors as they become available.
