Now that spring is in the air, there’s no reason to go to the grocery store to get the best produce, meats, cheeses and snacks – instead, you can get amazing artisan items that are locally grown and made at Jersey City farmers’ markets.

There are quite a few Jersey City farmers’ market options near your Beacon apartment, so make sure you check them all out to see what interesting items that they have in store for your Beacon apartment kitchen!

Historic Downtown Jersey City Farmers’ Market, located on Grove Street at the PATH Plaza in Jersey City which is six minutes from your Beacon apartment, began in 2008 with less than 10 vendors and has exploded into a phenomenal market with over 25 vendors serving up tasty treats from fresh fruits and vegetables to freshly baked empanadas to homemade mozzarella.

This farmers’ market is open from May through December on Mondays and Thursdays from 4 p.m to 8 p.m., making for a great stop after work before you head home to your Beacon apartment!

Riverview Farmers’ Market, located at 498 Palisade Ave, Jersey City which is four minutes from your Beacon apartment, is organized by Farms in the Heights, a grassroots, 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization established to provide access to local food systems, grow our local economy and promote environmental stewardship for the benefit of all Jersey City Heights community members.

The Riverview Farmers Market is held every Sunday (rain or shine) from the first Sunday in May through the Sunday before Thanksgiving in November, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
