Just ahead of kick-off of its seventh season, the World Famous Nutley Farmers Market is getting social with the launch of a new Facebook page and Twitter stream. With the addition of a powerful social media presence, market patrons will be able to discover the arrival of local seasonal produce, special appearances at the market, as well as news about the much loved Nutley Food Fest late in the season.
The Nutley Farmers’ Market is the only Sunday market in Essex County. Each year the market is attracting more residents than the year before, and judging from the number of “M” car magnets, many residents of Montclair are visiting as well. Montclair residents like to think of their township as the “Food Capital of the Garden State,” so if those hard-core foodies are visiting the Nutley Farmers’ Market, it must mean that something terrific is going on here!
The success of the market is the result of many factors including leadership that understands that responding to needs and desires of patrons is what makes a market strong. An eclectic mix of farmers and food-crafters plus great parking just make everything all the better. The new Facebook and Twitter accounts will no doubt strengthen the market.
The JerseyFresh Nutley Farmers’ Market, like Nutley itself, is one of those gems that is hidden right in the middle of everything.
Nutley is known as the home of the home of Cowan’s Public (best craft cocktails in NJ), Jaret’s Stuffed Cupcakes (they’re stuffed!), and the Old Canal Inn‘s “Death Seat Burger” – by the end of this Farmers’ Market Season it will also be known as home to one of the best Sunday Farmers’ Markets in the Garden State.
The Nutley Farmers Market is located in the Municipal Lot behind the Nutley Diner. The lot is huge. There is room for expansion of the market as well as plenty of free parking. Free Parking. Lots of it. For the GPS Crowd, plug in the address of the Nutley Diner 372 Centre Street Nutley NJ 07110 to find it.
