Madison’s Farmers’ Market Kicks Off Grand Opening on Thursday, June 6th

May 29, 2013 at 12:00 AM

MADISON, NJ - It’s that time of year again when the (DDC) Downtown Development Commission presents the Madison Farmers’ Market which is sponsored by Drew University of Madison and Gary’s Wine and Marketplace. To kick off its season, a ribbon cutting will be held on Thursday, June 6th just outside the Museum of Early Trades and Crafts.  The Downtown Development Commission will set up a table on the museum’s lawn offering free glitter tattoos to celebrate the opening.

The market will be located at Green Village Road and will open at 1:00 each Thursday with closing at 6:00 p.m. throughout the entire season which is from Thursday, June 6th through Thursday, October 17th.

There will also be a newcomer this season – Breadsmith of Cranford Township, NJ.  Items available will include specialty breads such as focaccia bread and a variety of sweets.  Freshly squeezed lemonade can be purchased as well.  Gary’s Wine and Marketplace will be present every other week featuring some of their gourmet specialties.

Vendors returning to the market this year include Gourmet Nuts and Dried Fruits of Florham Park, Kettle Korn of Hillsborough Township, Secret Garden Soap of Madison, Paolo’s Kitchen, Pickle Licious, Alstede Farms of Chester, Vacchiano Farm of Warren County and Melick’s Town Farm of Tewksbury.

Madison’s market shoppers can find parking at Waverly Green.  A new parking lot for seniors has been made available this year at 27 Kings Road which was the previous lot for Mini Motors.

Brad Cramer, owner of Cramers Carpet One and member of the Downtown Development Commission said, “The new parking being made available for seniors is great, and I think the Green Village location is better because it won’t affect traffic flow as much.  Cars won’t have to be moved by 11:30 as they were previously at the Waverly location.  Other parking areas won’t be impacted by the change either.”
