More at the Market
What comes to mind when you think of “farmer’s markets?”
Ripe seasonal produce, colorful flowers, freshly baked bread, and music?
While local farmer’s markets can have a direct positive impact on your weekend morning, they also significantly connect our community and play an important role in supporting small businesses and the local economy.
The Oceanside Park Farmers, Antiques, and Artisan Market opened in January 2020 to much fanfare before it’s closing just 9-weeks later due to the global pandemic. Since its reopening in November 2020, the market has gained popularity amongst locals and visitors for the eclectic array of traditional market fare and rotation of engaging More at the Market activities, ranging from morning yoga to art and cooking classes, holiday happenings, live music, and more.
“Farmer’s markets are abundant sources of food, connection, and resilience in our communities across the country, but they don’t just happen on their own,” said Ben Feldman, Farmers Market Coalition Executive Director. “Behind the scenes of every successful farmer’s market is a dedicated team working to make it thrive.”
