MONTVILLE, NJ - On Sunday mornings starting on June 14, you will find a new Farmers Market at the Towaco Train Station parking lot on Route 202. The Market, proudly called The John Becker Farm to Table Farmers Market, Borough of Lincoln Park/Township of Montville, will be open every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. through October 4.
The late John Becker, a Montville Township resident who was an active volunteer in town, was an advocate for a farmers market in the Township. The market is named after Mr. Becker and will provide our residents and businesses with an alternate venue to buy fresh produce and foods direct from farmers and local vendors. The market is generously sponsored by two local banks, Lincoln Park Savings Bank and Valley National Bank.
A variety of vendors and quality of products are key to having a successful market. The Farm to Table Market will feature fruits and vegetables from a conventional farm as well as an organic farm. Other products expected to be sold include fresh and exotic meats, jams, jelly, pierogis and honey.
The location is charming and quaint, with the recent renovation and addition of businesses across from the train station, as well as the bustling Rails restaurant on the opposite side of the tracks. The Market is on a main road that is easy to access from nearby towns and Route 287. Sunday is an ideal family day to stop by the market and shop for fresh produce and foods for the week. Although families are encouraged to enjoy the market, pets will not be allowed.
With location, plus the quality and variety of vendors, it will be a fun and healthy way to spend part of the day.
