This has long been a way of life for our New Jersey farmers. Many large farm markets started out as a wagon selling fresh vegetables and fruits when in season.
Open air tailgate farmer markets continue to expand in many urban areas. This is a great way for farmers to sell fresh produce directly to the consumers. Interaction between farmers and consumers is a positive way “to tell our ag story.”
Just drive off our toll roads and you can find many kinds of agriculture. New Jersey soils and climates make us a natural for fruits and vegetables – A to Z apples and asparagus to zucchini. This is how we became known as “the Garden State.”
