Another Season of Fresh Produce by Greenwood Ave. Farmers Market

The Greenwood Ave. Farmers Market is gearing up for another season of fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy food access and physical activities for kids in Trenton! We’re pining for warmer weather, like the one pictured here during our Water Fest last season!

It’s hard to imagine weather this warm when it’s February and we’re looking at a few more months of cold. We know that spring is just around the corner and our farmers are getting ready to start their seeds and plan for the new growing season. Hopefully, Mother Nature will cooperate to bring us a fantastic growing season so our market will be full of New Jersey greens, berries, zucchini, peaches, tomatoes, corn, apples, pumpkins and all the rest of the crops we know and love.

We’ll be announcing our vendor list in late spring on our website and Facebook page as well as our Fest schedule for community members to participate in for physical activities and health screenings. Spring isn’t too far off, so stay tuned!
