CHATHAM, NJ -  Saturday, June 17th marks the return of the annual Chatham Borough Farmers’ Market. The 2017 season is the market’s 11th year of providing Fresh Jersey Produce and offering other local products to the Chatham community, operating from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. every Saturday until Nov. 18.

During its 11 years of operation, the Chatham Borough Farmers’ Market has promoted local businesses and organizations, and provided organic produce and healthy dishes for the community. As a result, the market has played a crucial role in benefiting the local economy and well-being of Chatham residents.

This year’s market will include 11 new stands providing local produce, baked goods, cooked food, informative non-profit stands, and other crafts & merchandise.

Products offered by Asbury Village Farm, Silver Lake Farm, and Brown Leaves Farm will be additions to the fresh produce offered at the market. All three vendors are based in New Jersey and offer local fruits, vegetables, flowers, and herbs.

New tasty treats and cooked dishes will also be introduced to the lineup every Saturday. Chef Pat’s Kitchen, based in Morris Plains, will be selling preservative free, home baked goods. Delicious baked goods from the Squirrell and the Bee, based in Millburn, will also be offered.

The Squirrel and the Bee caters to those with certain dietary needs as well as those without: offering all grain-free, gluten-free, refined sugar free, and mostly dairy free products.

Sweet Carol’s will also be offering a variety of health conscious sweet treats. Located in Mahwah, Sweet Carol’s uses all-natural, sugar-free ingredients in their baked goods and homemade jams.

Mexican Spice will be adding to the diversity of the dishes offered every Saturday, preparing delicious, authentic Mexican cuisine.

A plethora of new crafts and non-edible merchandise will also be expected on Saturday. The four new artisans and merchants will include BEad Happy, Everydayjun, Flower Basket Ladybug, and Hidden Pastures Alpaca Fiber Shop.

All four vendors will add a diverse array of products to Chatham’s farmers’ market: BEad Happy selling a collection of unique, beaded jewelry; Everydayjun will provide waste-free lunch materials; Flower Basket Ladybug will present a variety of handbags, scarves, and pins -- all crafted with a hidden ladybug featured in their designs, and finally Hidden Pastures Alpaca Fiber Shop, offering luxury fibers and yarns, finished and handmade fiber goods, and fiber arts equipment.

Three non-profit vendors will be added to last year’s line up in the 2017 Farmers’ Market.
