A cornucopia of seasonally fresh fruits, vegetables and specialty products are available for local residents to harvest at a weekly Cranford Farmer’s Market on Thursdays from 2-7 pm through October, in Municipal Lot 1 at the corner of Springfield and North Union Avenues. The market is sponsored by the Cranford Community Connection and will feature locally sourced New Jersey farm fresh produce, along with pickles and humus, fresh cheeses and a variety of food goods. Participating vendors will include New Jersey farmers and specialty food producers as well as Cranford businesses.
The Cranford Community Connection is a newly formed committee that brings together members from different organizations to promote community spirit and involvement. Among the groups involved are the Centennial Village Group, Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Management Group. Proceeds from the Farmer’s Market will be used to help fund a rain garden in Cranford.
