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.
