The 2018 Franklin Township Community Farmers Market is returning with its mission of supporting Franklin Township and New Jersey agriculture! The Market, with its carefully curated mix of produce and specialty vendors, was the 2017 winner of the Healthier Somerset Award!

Community Farmers Market

Please include, on your “Saturday To Do List”, shopping with the vendors at the Market Fair. The vendors are different each week, but each one has something good and with a great price. When you support the vendors you are helping The Citizens Club of Franklin Township Inc raise funds to maintain our building.  Are you interested in being a vendor? Call Aurtherine at 732-939-0514.
