NUTLEY, NJ - The JerseyFresh Nutley Farmers’ Market, like Nutley itself, is one of those gems that is hidden right in the middle of everything. With major roadways and freeways cutting through and across almost every town in the state except Nutley, the township is unique in that “you can’t get there from here.” 

A trip into this Essex County community involves turns and curves, as well as passing through other communities if traveling by parkway or the 3. With GPS in every automobile, people from all over the region are discovering what the locals have known for a long time. The community is the home of Cowan's Public (best craft cocktails in NJ), the Old Canal Inn, more beer taps that you can imagine, MEAL, where the steaks draw patrons from across the Garden State, and Jaret’s Stuffed Cupcakes (they're stuffed!), Nutley also has a pretty nifty and growing farmers market.

The Nutley Farmers Market is located in the Municipal Lot behind the Nutley Diner. The lot is huge. There is room for expansion of the market plus plenty of free parking. Free Parking. Lots of it.

It gets better. The market manager knows that word of mouth is the best form of advertising, so they encourage patrons and guests to use the hashtag #nutleyfarmersmarket on facebook, twitter, and instagram. Has it worked? Of course, that’s how I discovered the market!
