Second Edition of `Farm Markets of Central New Jersey’ Released

The Garden Club of Princeton has released the second edition of their popular guide, `Farm Markets of Central New Jersey.’

The new edition covers farm markets in Mercer, Burlington, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth, and Somerset counties and has been expanded to cover Ocean County . The second edition has also been updated with new information about the markets listed.

First published in 2010, the purpose of the book is to promote awareness and support for the locally grown foods that are available in central New Jersey. The book was developed by volunteers and local experts under the direction of the conservation committee of the Garden Club of Princeton.

“Our sincere hope is that this book will give people all the information they need to buy more fresh produce directly from local farms and farmers,” said Kim Rizk who co-chaired the committee for multiple years and helped spearhead this project.

A grant from New Jersey Committee of the Garden Club of America covered the cost of printing the guides, which are for sale at the Terhune Orchards Farm Store at 330 Cold Soil Road in Lawrenceville, Labyrinth Books, the Terra Libre cafe at the Princeton Public Library, and the Terra Momo Bread Co. in downtown Princeton.

Proceeds will support the New Jersey Farm to School Network, a non-profit organization that works to empower schools to change the way they source and serve food in New Jersey K-12 schools. The organization advocates for the procurement of fresh food, direct from local farms into New Jersey school cafeterias. The Farm to School Network also promotes and supports school garden education as a way to incorporate nutrition and environmental education into the New Jersey educational curriculum.
