City of Hoboken to expand Farmers Market offerings in 2022

Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla and the City of Hoboken today announced that starting this year, the city will host three farmers’ markets expanding access to fresh produce from local and regional vendors to residents across the city.

Starting next month, the city will launch a new Southwest Park Farmers’ Market in partnership with the Hoboken Quality of Life Coalition (QLC).

Residents will now have access to weekly Farmers Markets in Downtown, Town Center and Downtown Hoboken.

“Access to fresh produce is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, which is why we’ve partnered with local organizations to expand our farmers’ market offerings,” said Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. “Like our other markets, the new Southwest Park Farmers’ Market will provide this underserved neighborhood with fresh vegetables, fruits and baked goods. Thanks to Manager Jennifer Gonzalez, David Calamoneri, the QLC and Bijou Properties for their partnership with my administration on this season’s farmers’ markets.”

Farmer’s Market season officially kicks off this Saturday, May 7 with the Downtown Farmer’s Market, sponsored by Bijou Properties.

The Downtown Farmers’ Market, which runs Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. through mid-December, will return under the 14th Street Overpass between Grand and Adams streets.

The Hoboken Farmers’ Market or Church Square Park Farmers’ Market is the city’s oldest farmers’ market, entering its 26th year this summer. The market, sponsored by the Hoboken Quality of Life Coalition, will return to Garden Street at Church Square Park between Fourth Street and Fifth Street every Tuesday from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. starting June 7.

The Southwest Park Farmers Market will be held every Thursday starting June 9 from 2-8 p.m. on the north side of the Observer Highway between Jackson Street and Harrison Street.

The Church Square Park Farmer’s Market and the Southwest Park Farmer’s Market will end in mid-November.
