SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Farmers Market, acclaimed as one of the area's best of its kind, will open April 23. The earlier than norm debut is due to frequent requests from both market vendors and loyal market customers.
A majority of last year’s vendors will be returning to the market this year, with a few new additions! A full listing of vendors will be available on summitfarmersmarket.com closer to the market's opening date.
This year marks the market’s 21st campaign of providing fresh, locally-sourced food and produce to the Summit community. The 'Give It Fresh Today' (G.I.F.T.) program will celebrate its fifth season at the market, continuing to collect fresh food each week to donate to those in need.
'Sunday Funday' activities, which begin in 2015, will also continue, with the following special events scheduled:
Blueberry Muffin Contest - July 9
Salsa Contest - September 10
Pumpkin Painting Contest - October 29
Pumpkin / Sweet Potato Pie Contest - November 12
