SOMERVILLE, NJ  - The weekly Farmers Market on Grove Street has proven popular with buyers picking through bunches of fresh vegetables like escarole, zucchini, squash, spinach, turnips, kale and radishes as well as fresh fruit, eggs, meats, cheeses, and other healthy foods.

The farmers trundle in early Wednesday morning to unload their fresh-picked New Jersey produce with customers showing up late morning, buying fresh, buying local, buying healthy.

Yesterday, the farmers were joined by a new vendor, one that specializes in health food for the mind.

The Somerville Library had a display with brochures, calendars and other information about the Somerset County Library System of New Jersey, as well as gently used books, all selling for 50 cents, less expensive than a bunch of radishes or a few ears of corn.

The library will be a part of the Farmers Market through summer and into the fall. The book selection includes everything from Little Golden Books to “For Dummies” manuals.

Next week, July 5th, representatives from Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital/Somerset will be a part of the Farmers Market, with interactive and educational displays on health, nutrition and other various health topics.

Sponsors of the Farmers Market are gathering recipes that will involve elements from all of the vendors at the market.
