Great variety of local produce and vendors. I especially like Moon Doggy Coffee Roasters. They roast their own beans so are always extremely fresh!

After my mother died in 1985,my sister moved to Ringwood,NJ and I stayed in NY. It was a great time going out to see her and she loved Ringwood. My sister took me all over to tag and garage sales and we always loved our veg. Growing up in the Bronx, we didn't have much money so instead of candy, we would eat raw onions,raw potatoes, raw celery and raw carrots. My sister unfortunately died @ age 50 in 2001 and I miss her so much.

In addition to VERY FRESH produce, the bakery has excellent pies ! There are often displays and/or information about community activities. All conveniently located next to our town library. [ Let's hope the politicals don't spoil the atmosphere by campaigning at the market come October - November. ]

EatLocal highlights commerce, fellowship and charity in our lovely town with the Ringwood Farmers Market. The Ringwood Famers Market is rich in variety and fresh products; provides an old fashioned country atmosphere for shopping and socializing; and works within the community to provide educational opportunities out-side of the growing season.

I love supporting local businesses, particularly local farms offering organic meat and produce. The food is far superior to any found in our markets and the act of connecting with old friends and making new ones first thing Saturday morning always starts my weekend on a great note. Although I grew up in Ringwood, I feel more connected to my community here than I have in years. Kudos to the folks who made our market happen!

We enjoy fresh vegetables, fruit, baked goods, meat, eggs, honey, cheese and the environment is lively and friendly. Its a great place to be on Saturday mornings. We also enjoy some artisan events where local artists are featured. The Market not only brings us superior quality food from local farmers but also they are doing good work at schools too. They are raising awareness at all the town schools of the benefits of eating farm fresh foods. The Ringwood Farmer's market is promoting a whole new lifestyle. Our family LOVES Ringwood Farmer's Market and feel very fortunate to have it in our beautiful town!

Ringwood has a great variety of vendors - fun to attend - clean... and I love the newsletter. I have been to the one on Route 15 in Laffette Village, as well as Riverdale - those are overpriced, traffic is chaotic and neither is clean. Ringwood has a family & friendly atmosphere - itís very organized... Itís worth the extra miles for me to go there from Sparta. I also love the newsletter Ė it always lets me know whatís new for the coming week.
