BERKELEY – The Berkeley Township Farmers Market opened for the season today, serving up fresh produce, as well as some products that you can’t find in any store.
There were tables of fresh fruits and vegetables, of course, courtesy local farm markets. Additionally, there were some more creative products, like soy candles, spice blends, and coffee. Three food trucks were also there, selling empanadas, hot dogs, and fruits and veggies served with dips.
The market is open every Tuesday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., from now until October.
The market’s vendors are set up on the outskirts of the parking lot of the township recreation department, located at 630 Atlantic City Blvd. (otherwise known as Route 9) It shares space with the Historical Society museum, which is also open while the market is on.
There were eight vendors at the first one, but there were spaces for the market to grow. Two of the vendors had to miss the first one due to vehicle issues, a township official said.
Those interested in having a space at a future one is encouraged to call Gina in the Recreation Department at 732-269-4456 ext. 3102. Vendors must have Liability Insurance.
