TOMS RIVER TOWNSHIP- The New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture, Douglas H. Fisher, came to the Downtown Toms River Farmers Market and visited with local produce vendors. Fisher’s goal was to highlight the great assortment of fall fruits and vegetables offered at the Farmer’s Market, not only in Toms River, but throughout the State.
On the corner of Irons and West Water Street, the Farmer’s Market hosts local fruit, vegetable and other food vendors every Wednesday from 11-5. Mayor Tom Kelaher said, “It’s always a pleasure to have the Secretary of Agriculture in our town as well as a great turnout from vendors and visitors.”
Secretary Fisher wants to remind consumers to continue to support New Jersey farmers by visiting community farmers markets around the state, many of which run through the end of October.
By popular demand, the Toms River Farmers’ Market will run Wednesdays through Nov. 20th and the Monday before Thanksgiving, Nov. 25th.
