SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Saturday brought the long-awaited return of the Scotch Plains Farmers Market in downtown Scotch Plains. 

The event features annual vendors, such as Ort Farms, and Stella's Empanadas, as well as new vendors, such as award-winning Jersey Spirits Distilling Co., which produces handmade small batch craft spirits. Co-founder John Granata will even offer a little sip of his innovative products, including Apple Pie Hooch, Patriots Trail Bourbon, and Barnegat White Maple Bourbon.

This Saturday, the "Best of the Best" vendors are returning for the 29th season with new hours from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. each week. This year expects to be bigger and better, with a promise to bring an even greater selection of fresh foods from diverse vendors.
