Hoboken used to be farmland. Now the only thing that grows here is the population.
Of course that population needs to eat, and farm-fresh food will forever be in demand…
Good news is that it’s Farmers’ Market season here in Hoboken, with a number of options available for the urbanite who wants to enjoy the bounty of the Garden State:
- Midtown Farmers Market — Rummage & Ruffage is 9-2 p.m. Saturday at the Church of the Holy Innocents (6th & Willow)
- The Garden Street Farmer’s Market is also on from 9-2 Saturday at 14th & Garden.
- The Downtown Hoboken Farmers’ Market runs Tuesdays from 3-7 p.m. on Washington Street between Newark & Observer.
- Then on Thursdays, the Jersey Freshness moves to the Hoboken Uptown Farmers’ Market on 13th & Hudson Streets from 2-7 p.m.
Markets run from June through October. Check back with hMAG for updates throughout the season.
