Welcome, the 2017 season (our 14th!) kicked off on June 6!
The fourteenth year of the West Windsor Community Farmers Market kicked off on Saturday, May 6 at 9:00am at the Vaughn Drive Commuter Lot in West Windsor. With sixteen regional farms, twelve artisan food and natural product vendors, weekly community groups, live music, special events and cooking demonstrations, the WWCFM continues to be New Jersey’s favorite farmers market* and place to spend Saturday mornings.
The market runs weekly, rain or shine from 9:00am-1:00pm until the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
Joining the WWCFM this season is Local 130 Seafood, advocates for responsibly raised domestic aquaculture, with offerings of fresh and local wild caught seafood.
In addition to our newest vendor, find seasonal, locally grown fruit, vegetables, mushrooms, pastured meats and poultry, cheese, milk and farm fresh eggs, woven fiber products, fresh pasta, breads, baked goods including gluten/grain/sugar-free selections, flowers, bedding plants, honey, prepared foods, soap, herbs, teas and seasonings, sauces, jams, pickled vegetables and wine. Breakfast and lunch selections include savory and sweet crepes, locally sourced egg sandwiches and fresh pressed juice and acai bowls. Remember to bring your knives, scissors and lawn tools for sharpening at Nice and Sharp, on-site weekly.
The WWCFM accepts SNAP/EBT and offers matching incentives up to $20 towards fruit and vegetable purchases for food assistance shoppers. Shoppers using SNAP should visit the Market Information Tent to swipe their EBT card to obtain market tokens for shopping throughout the marketplace.
The Market continues to sell Market Bucks tokens for shoppers short on cash; simply swipe any major credit or debit card and receive tokens to spend at any farm or vendor.
The Market is located in the Vaughn Drive Parking Lot of the southbound side of the Princeton Junction Train Station, one mile from the Alexander Road and Route 1 intersection or half a mile walk down Vaughn Drive from the Dinky stop. Ample car and bicycle parking is available. Use 2 Vaughn Drive, West Windsor in your GPS and the market is located at the 2nd driveway on the right as you enter Vaughn Drive.
*Since 2012, the WWCFM has been voted the Top Celebrated Market in New Jersey and a Top 100 Most Celebrated Market Nationwide, in American Farmland Trust’s I Love My Farmers Market Contest.
SNAP & Garden State Good Food Network
This season, we've partnered with the Garden State Good Food Network to help folks utilizing food assistance stretch their SNAP/EBT benefits further.
For each $1 SNAP market token purchased, we'll match another $1 token towards the purchase of more fruit and vegetables (up to $20/market day)!!
Please let anyone you know, well, know! Fresh food is a right, not a privilege.
