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.

In today’s markets it is not uncommon to find artisan breads, local honey, baked goods, dried fruits and nuts, locally crafted cheeses, flowers, lotions, soaps and much more.
