MADISON, NJ - More space, more activities, better parking. The first day of the Farmers’ Market, June 4th, will feature not only the location change to Central Avenue but some exciting new activities for all ages to kick off the season, including a special performance by the Central Avenue School Choir.

This season the Madison Chamber of Commerce will offer special Health/Wellness/Beauty Events on a weekly basis called “Look Good, Feel Good Madison” at the Farmers’ Market.

Each week will feature two local businesses that specialize in these fields. June 4th will feature La La Land from Main Street in Madison and Retro Fitness of Florham Park.

"I think this is a great way to incorporate local wellness and beauty businesses into the market, said Karen Meyers, Executive Director of The Madison Chamber of Commerce. "It feels like a really natural fit."

Also making an appearance on opening day will be the Madison Fire Department’s beloved Geraldine, the Ahrens-Fox, model P-4 fire engine, which was originally purchased and given to the Madison Fire Department by Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge in 1920.   Geraldine has recently been reacquired by the Madison Fire Department after massive fundraising efforts. 

The ribbon cutting to mark the opening of the 2015 season of the Madison Farmers Market will be held at 2:00p.m. on Central Avenue and Main Street.
