NUTLEY, NJ - The Nutley Farmers Market, established in 2009, features fresh local foods, live musical entertainment, special guests and events, and a weekly walking group in which walkers have the opportunity to chat with an expert from a wide variety of fields such as health, wellness, fitness, education, government, law, art, design, writing, and more.
The Market runs 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Sundays from mid-June through October in centrally located Municipal Parking Lot No. 1 (William Street on the east side of Franklin Avenue). Recycling initiatives are featured throughout the season, focusing on items that aren't part of the regular curbside recycling such as trophies, textiles, and large plastics.
Special events include ther Peach Party, Eco-Fest, Food Fest, School Pride Day, and Civic Pride Day. Featured vendors, demonstrations, and community outreach days with the Nutley Public Library and the Montclair Township Animal Shelter occur regularly. Each week, the Nutley Farmers Market accepts food and monetary donations on behalf of the Nutley Family Service Bureau Food Pantry.
The Nutley Farmers Market helps support New Jersey family farmers and local food producers; enables the community to meet and ask questions of the people who grow and make the food; brings shoppers into our local business district; and is a great place to meet friends and neighbors.
