You know summer is on the way when we start to see farmers' markets popping up left and right.

Last summer, my wife and I found an adorable little farmers market in Seaside Park.

It was right off the main drag and was set up right near the Seaside Park Marina. It had a few vendors, mostly selling fresh produce, and it was a fun way to spend a morning.

Of course, you can't mention farmer's markets near the Jersey Shore without also talking about the Brick Farmers Markey at Windward Beach Park.

It's absolutely massive with tons of vendors selling food, produce, as well as some really cool stuff.

The Windward Beach Park Farmers Market operates every Saturday from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM.

Another farmers market was just announced, and it'll start being open in the near future; I'm excited about this one because it's right here in Toms River.

Plus, the list of vendors looks fantastic.

The best part, or one of the best parts, is that parking for this farmer's market is free!

The farmer's market is still accepting vendors, but right now it looks like Chucks Ice Cream is confirmed as well as Moores Market, Sparkles And Swirls, Avon, Amazon, and Breakaway Boutique.

Those are just some of the vendors scheduled for the May 18th market, Patch reports that there will be even more vendors coming on the May 25th market.
