Jump to your favorite Farmers Market in New Jersey with this ultimate guide from NJspots. There are some great markets to head to for local produce.
When people start talking about the summer season, it’s inevitable that the iconic Jersey Tomato will come up in the conversation. What makes the Jersey tomato special? Why is it different or better than any other tomato? That question is what sparked my latest produce adventure: find a farmer and reveal exactly what makes it the Garden State’s most famed fruit (yes, it’s technically a fruit, but we all know it’s really a vegetable).
Besides giving us something beautiful to look at, The Garden State also boasts a bounty of Autumn produce, such as sweet potatoes, pumpkins, acorn and butternut squash, beets, leeks, kale, carrots, cabbage, apples, cranberries, and Brussels sprouts, to name a few! This recipe guide will help you support local farmers and serve the most amazing spread this holiday season.
