Fresh produce is back again in Uptown Hoboken on Thursdays with extended hours based on feedback from customers last year…
Hoboken Uptown Farmers’ Market
to start Thursday June 6th from 2-7 pm
The Hoboken Uptown Farmers’ Market, in conjunction with The Quality of Life Coalition, will be arriving soon, with proof in the form of strawberries, sweet corn, and those famous Jersey tomatoes. Beginning June 6, and running through October, the market will be open Thursdays from 2 pm to 7 pm. (The market will be closed on July 4 for the holiday.). The new, earlier opening time is in response to customer demand. You wanted your veggies sooner, and the market is happy to deliver! The convenient time and location at the corner of 13th and Hudson Streets ensures that residents of uptown Hoboken and beyond will have an opportunity to load up on some freshly picked salad greens for Thursday night’s dinner or a scrumptious blueberry pie for the weekend barbecue.
The Hoboken Uptown Farmers’ Market is excited to announce a few new vendors in the mix this season. Alan’s Flower Farm, of Chesterfield, NJ will be joining the market each week with fresh cut flowers and produce from his farm. Additionally, market-goers can look forward to live demonstrations and veggie education from Hoboken’s own Skinny Chef, Jennifer Iserloh, on the third Thursday of each month. On the final Thursday of each month, Hobokenites can bring their dull kitchen knifes to the market, where Neil’s Sharpening Service will revive the blades to full tomato slicing capacity.
These new faces join returning vendors Stony Hill Farms of Chester, Gina’s Bakery of Montclair, Hoboken Farms, and customer favorite, Dr. Pickle, who will happily give customers a sample of any of his briny, delicious olives, roasted peppers and pickles, of course! As a certified ‘Jersey Fresh’ market, the customer can be assured that the fresh produce is grown right here in New Jersey.
As in years past, the market is committed to helping our neighbors in Hoboken who have limited access to fresh fruits and vegetables. At the end of each day, vendors are encouraged to donate leftover produce to the Hoboken Shelter, which is celebrating its thirtieth year of service to our community. Additionally, eligible customers are welcome to use WIC (Women, Infants & Children Program) coupons with participating vendors.
