Brick Township getting its First Farmers’ Market
Brick Township will open its first-ever Farmers' Market on Saturday, April 25, at Windward Beach Park on Princeton Avenue.
Mayor John G. Ducey and the Township Council announced the plans Tuesday. Fresh vegetables and produce from local farmers will be available every Saturday, 9 a.m. to Noon, weather permitting, through September 12, with the exception of 4th of July.
The market, along the Metedeconk River, also will showcase pickled products, baked breads, relishes and more. An assortment of flowers and plants also will be available ahead of the Mother's Day holiday.
"We are excited to bring a Farmers' Market to Brick. This market will encourage the community to eat fresh and buy local," said Mayor Ducey.
The Brick Farmers' Market is being funded through a grant awarded to the Township by the United States Department of Agriculture.
