WEST ORANGE, NJ - If you've never been to the West Orange Farmer's Market, you need to know what you're missing.  Fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables at prices comparable to local supermarkets in the area are available each Friday between 12 noon and 6 pm  in the market's new location, the Quigley Parking lot at the intersection of Harrison Avenue, Main Street, Eagle Rock Avenue and Mississippi Avenue.

In addition to farm fresh produce, flowers and plants are available at competitive prices.  Sunflowers made their first appearance last Friday for a dollar apiece. Honey, jams, and even pies and treats can be purchased.  Freshly dried fruits and nuts are available in various combinations.

Currently, Valley View Farms, Stony Hill Farms, and Gourmet Fruits and Nuts are on location each week.  Huge composting barrels were available for $35.00 apiece, and more businesses are expected to join the market, which runs through October.  The Downtown West Orange Alliance has provided transportation for seniors from the Renna and Degnan Houses to attend, and a shady area with seating has been set up as well. The lot is handicap accessible and credit, cash, and debit cards are accepted.
