Following a 28-year absence from the Edison, NJ community, the current Edison Farmers Market was established last year (2008), as an initiative of the Clara Barton Amboy Avenue Neighborhood Preservation Program (CBAA NPP). It is the only Jersey Fresh Farmers Market in the state with Sunday hours (8:00 AM - 2:00 PM). Starting with seven vendors last year (2008), the Edison Farmers Market has grown by 30% to ten (10) vendors this year (2009), with 500+ visitors each Sunday, from June to October. Emphasizing "Buy Local", the Edison Farmers Market offers Jersey Fresh Produce and Goods, including: Fruits & Vegetables; Nuts, Seeds & Nut/Seed Products; Baked Goods; Pickles & Pickle Products; Healthy Meats & Seafoods; Cheeses; Plants & Flowers; Organic Soaps, Household Cleaning Products & Fragrances. It has been noted that more visitors to the Edison Farmers Market walk than drive to the event each Sunday. In addition to a plein-aire event, it offers a venue at which neighbors and visitors meet and speak with each other on a variety of community-based subjects. The Coordinator of the CBAA NPP, as well as CBAA NPP volunteer members attend the Edison Farmers Market as volunteer facilitators, as well as to provide information on other local, community events, activities, initiatives, services and businesses. The CBAA NPP and the Township of Edison are jointly working to develop grant proposals to obtain funding for the development and implementation of marketing strategies to increase vendor and visitor participation at the Edison Farmers Market.

There’s no tomato like a Jersey tomato! And there’s no Jersey tomato like one freshly picked from a Jersey farm! That goes for all the other delicious fruits and vegetables and herbs offered at the Edison Farmers Market as well. The freshly baked goodies, the flowers, the pickles and other culinary treats ---all add to the charm of this community event. Great location, convenient Sunday hours, friendly conversation --- what a delight!
