CLARK, NJ – One of the benefits of living in the Garden State is the abundance of fresh local produce available all summer long. An easy way to get a hold of fresh picked crops is at local farmers’ markets. 

Farmers’ markets have become a staple throughout the state. They typically offer fresh fruits and vegetables, and these days many offer other culinary surprise surprises.
