The market will include a diverse mix of fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, eggs, meats, cheeses, organic honey, baked goods and more.

Vendors will include Cheech’s Own Cold Brew Coffee, Martenette Farms, Norz Hill Farm and Market, Shibumi Farm and Stonybrook Meadows.

The market, which will be open rain or shine, has been established through a partnership between Bridgewater Township, Empower Somerset, the Somerset County Library System and Healthier Somerset, a coalition that provided support from the Department of Health and a New Jersey Healthy Communities Network grant.

“Healthier Somerset is excited to partner with Bridgewater Township on its farmers market in an effort to enhance access to healthy food options and improve the overall health and wellness of community members,” Serena Collado, Healthier Somerset Convener and director of community health at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset, said in the release.
