Montclair Center Farmers’ Market To Return This Summer

Anyone who ever doubted, even for a minute, that the residents of Montclair don’t love food more than anyone is in for a surprise.

For 2016 Summer in Montclair will once again include two farmer’s markets: the decades old “Montclair Farmers’ Market” on Walnut Street as well as the “Farmers’ Market 2.0” that returns for a third year on South Park Street in Montclair Center.



New Jersey is the Garden State, anyone who has been stuck in traffic looking at the license plate of the car before them knows this. From that vantage point, and countless television appearances, it would appear that the state nickname is just that, a nickname, because so many of the gardens are gone. Decades of out of control suburban sprawl have pushed New Jersey’s farms to the outer edges of the state where there is space to grow, but few local customers. Farmers’ Markets are changing all of that by bringing the farmer to the consumer. And the results are a culinary wonderland, and soon that wonderland will be in the heart of Montclair.

The Saturday Montclair Farmers’ Market is one of the oldest of suburban markets. Located in the Walnut Street Train Station parking lot, this market only sells what is grown in New Jersey. The official opening day for the Summer Montclair Market is June 4th but those in the know have discovered that many favorite farmers and food crafters are at Walnut St Station every Saturday morning year round.

The Farmers’ Market in Montclair Center is a seasonal market operating from June to October. A portion of South Park Street closed every Tuesday and the market runs from about lunchtime into the evening. All the Jersey Fresh goodness of the Montclair Center Market starts on Tuesday June 7.
