BERNARDSVILLE, NJ -- The recently launched winter market downtown drew a special dignitary last weekend.

Former New Jersey Governor Tom Kean was on hand to do some shopping in the indoor market at the Bernardsville train station last Saturday.

Despite the impending snow that fell much of the day, Governor Kean came by and said the Winter Market is a "great idea" and "brings me downtown."
