At the grocery store, it can be hard to find locally-grown items, so it's great to have the market close by and have fresh-from-the-farm produce!

They have heirloom tomatoes and fresh nectarines! Heirloom tomatoes are especially hard to come by in the Newark area but you can find them at the UMDNJ farmers market. I also really love including local fruits and veggies into my diet.

It is located in neighborhood where low income folks have little access to greatquality fruits and vegetables. Hospital workers are often so busy, they take short cuts with their own health - the market brings great food right to their workplace.

When you work full-time, it is very difficult to get to a farmers market on a regular basis. Having one on campus is great. The fruits and vegetables I have purchased there are delicious and reasonably priced. It is a nice break in the middle of my busy day.

"Farmer's Market"?? Where are the farmers? I expect the prices in a Farmer's Market to be at least 1/3 less then in a supermarket! The most prices here are more than at the averige supermarket. Nice idea, bad execution!

It's a great way to get appealing, healthy, and fresh food choices into the heart of Newark, which has far too many high-fat fast-food options for its residents, particularly in the area of the campus.

It's wonderful to be able to shop for local food at work. Most farmer's markets that are accessible to me are only available during working hours, so I'm rarely able to go. This is a wonderful resource for the Newark UMDNJ community.

I support the market because it's community-based and needed in this neighborhood. The University hospital is a hub and accessible to everything. Hopefully the market will bring a sense of wholesomeness, bargins in prices, and a good ole country feeling. We at UMDNJ/hospital's auxillary can use that kind of exposure.

Our farmer's market is helping bring fresh, Jersey-grown fruits and vegetables to some who may not be able to venture out to the rural markets. It also helps promote healthier eating habits which could start a positive trend, especially in our area, where preserved garbage seems to always be the first thing available. Taking into consideration the ongoing economic distress of many, if the farmer's market doesn't currently have the capabilities to also serve individuals receiving financial assitance, it should look into making it possible. Thank you!

There are no fresh fruit/vegetable markets anywhere close to the university hospital. Asking people to have healthy eating habits, needs availability of fresh ingredients. It helps community with healthy food choices.

Because Newark needs healthy foods in their face. Because it saves me time during the week not speeding to the farmers market next to my home....because it is just nice to have and support Jersey's own.

Farmers market is great for the UMDNJ community. The fruits, vegetables and baked goods are so fresh, tasty and shopping around is easy. We do not have to go out of our way to get fresh goodies. Farmers Market promotes health eating. Fresh food, health food, easy to get to, what more can we ask for.

The Farmers Market gives the employees the opportunity to purchase fresh produce and baked goods that might not be available in particular neighborhoods. It also gives the neighboring community the opportunity to purchase essential and affordable produce which is greatly needed in urban areas.

The vegetables I purchased were truly wonderful. What a great thing to do that also includes the community.
