UPDATE:  A message from the Scotch Plains Farmer's Market organizers notes that due to the impending inclement weather, opening day will be pushed to Saturday, May 13th.

Folks, we regret that our market will be closed tomorrow due to the impending inclement weather. It is anticipated that there will be heavy rain and strong winds which ARE concerning to us.

So, we have elected to err on the side of safety - the last thing we want is to have tents and umbrellas flying, and anyone getting hurt.

Thank you for your anticipated understanding.

Opening Day will take place next Saturday, May 20th. We look forward to seeing each and every one of you here. Please share and let your friends know too. As always, thank you for your support!
