Another local Farmer included George Fetzer from Valley View Farms, located in Newton, NJ, who has been selling fresh produce at the West Orange farmers market since its inception.  They had a beautiful selection of flowers for sale along with fresh produce, homemade dressings, and honey. In addition, Valley View was selling a unique and unsual type of produce called a 'garlic scape' for $2.00 a bunch.  Garlic Scapes are the curling tops of garlic plants, and are edible like the garlic bulbs. Valley View also sells in other farmers markets in Roselle Park, and Old Lafayette Village.  For more information on Valley View Farms; you can reach them at 973-579-7271.

Fetzer said as the summer progresses, expect to see a lot of variety in produce due to an early growing season.

The West Orange Farmers Market, sponsored by the Downtown West Orange Alliance, has prices comparable to local supermarkets.  Fresh farm grown tomatoes were $2.49 a pound, broccoli was $1.99 and cilantro was $1.49.  Purchase farm fresh produce and support the local growing community by visiting the farmers market.  All vendors today accepted credit and debit cards as well, though Gourmet Nuts required a $10 minimum purchase and an additional $1.00 charge for credit card usage.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.
