The Princeton Farmers Market kicks off the summer season and its 15th year today, June 1. The market is back at Hinds Plaza for the first time since the pandemic.
Last year the market was held at the Dinky train station on Alexander Road. The previous two years it was held at the Franklin Parking Lot.
The market is opening after the completion of phase one of the Witherspoon Street construction, which ended just in time for Princeton University’s reunions and graduation.
This year the market will feature organic produce, pasture-raised meat and eggs, freshly baked bread, empanadas, pickles, flowers, and more.
The market is authorized to accept SNAP/EBT cards for eligible purchases. The market will match up to $10 on SNAP transactions per eligible customer per day.
Parking is free for one hour in the Spring Street garage next to the market.
The market will run every Thursday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. from June 1 through November 16 on Hinds Plaza next to the Princeton Public Library.
