BERNARDSVILLE, NJ -- A new Winter Market will open inside the Bernardsville Train station on Saturday, Jan. 4.
The indoor market will be open Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. through March 28 in the currently vacant building at the station.
With the support of Mayor Mary Jane Canose and the Borough Council, the Winter Market will include a number of popular vendors from the summer market. Some new vendors with seasonal offerings will also be part of the market. Poultry, strudel, eggs, baked goods, cakes, leafy greens, garlic hummus, tilapia and more will be available at the market.
"Bernardsville has many rich traditions," Mayor Canose said. "The train station, completed in 1902 as a one-story stone structure, is still active."
According to the borough's website, the railroad was integral to the transport of peaches and other crops grown in this fertile area. There was a thriving farmer’s market serving the downtown during the 1930s. More recently, an outdoor farmers’ market has been running in the train station parking lot for more than 25 years.
"Now in 2020, a new winter market will open in the original train station to help spark new growth downtown," Canose said. "Amazingly, the original interior features of the building are still intact."
The Bernardsville Winter Market will be open every Saturday from Jan. 4 to March 28.
