Summit Farmers Market Enjoying Successful Season
Wednesday, July 25, 2012 • 4:31pm
The Summit Farmers Market is temporarily located to Beechwood Road and Bank Street due to reconstruction at Shopper Parking Lot #2, but expects to return to its regular location on or about September 2. The first weekend in the new location saw a return of the usual visitors, but also brought in many new faces and overall the move was positively received. The Farmers Market hours are 8 am to 1 pm, rain or shine, every Sunday until November 18.
The Farmers Market has been a Summit tradition for 19 years and provides some of New Jersey’s freshest, farm produce and a variety of specialty items. New to the market this year is Give It Fresh Today (G.I.F.T.), a donation incentive that invites visitors to the Farmers Market to buy extra or to bring surplus from their home gardens to donate to organizations that feed the hungry. The farmers have also donated surplus to G.I.F.T. and to date over 700 pounds of goods have been collected.
“People enjoy visiting the Summit Farmers Market on Sunday mornings not only because of the large selection of local and regional goods available,” says Marin Mixon, Executive Director of Summit Downtown, Inc., “but also because it’s a fun place for people to meet and enjoy the outdoors.”
