Weekly activity can be found at the Downtown Millburn Farmers’ Market all month long as they celebrate 20 seasons of growing and living in Short Hills! On Essex Street, just behind Town Hall, you are sure to be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of fruits and vegetables that await you! The market is open Fridays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., from now until October.
You’ll be supporting the local community surrounding your Short Hills home as all the produce is grown locally by NJ farmers, including Alstede Farms, Ort Farms, Vacchiano Farms and E & R Organic. You may even get to meet some of the farmers or vendors when you visit and shop, as featured sellers are usually on hand from Hoboken Farms, Gina’s Bakery, Paolos Kitchen, and Dr. Pickle. Between the colors and sights, smells and tastes, you’ll find your day at the Farmers’ Market is quite a treat and a huge benefit to living in Short Hills and Millburn. You’ll be surprised to know it is also one of the strongest and most successful markets in New Jersey!
Later in the month, plan a short drive or train ride to spend a day out with the kids at Family Fun Day, on July 14th.
