Farmers Markets, Somers Point Beach Concerts, Maritime Fest – Weekend Happenings
Many popular trends tend to be very silly and temporary. One popular South Jersey trend that is not at all silly and, hopefully will stick around, is the growing popularity of farmers markets.
Suddenly, it seems like most towns have some kind of a farm market, if only one day a week or during the summer season. What a wonderful way to get fresh fruits, veggies, meats and seafood and the spices and ingredients we use to cook with them.
Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG will be on hand for the introduction of an exciting new market, as Shore Medical Center’s Farmers Market & Craft Fair kicks off from 2p -6p. this Fri, 6/16.
The market will feature locally grown, pesticide-free produce, food and craft vendors, plus nutrition and wellness education from Shore Medical Center experts, food trucks, yoga, local honey, fresh cut flowers and more – up to 50 vendors each week.
On June 16th, Shore Cancer Center representatives will be on hand to share information on skin cancer prevention. A portion of the proceeds each week will benefit Shore’s Cancer Center.
