|Jersey Fresh Produce|
The OCNJ Farmers Market begins in July and is headquartered on the Ocean City Tabernacle grounds at Sixth Street and Asbury Avenue in the downtown area. It is, of course, a great place to select delicious “Jersey Fresh produce” – direct from the growers. But there is also fresh-caught seafood, cut flowers or plants in pots for the home gardener, home-canned products, baked goods, snacks, and beverages.
It is a veritable smorgasbord of earthly delights – of the edible variety. And it is a feast for the eyes as well.
Guests of the Scarborough Inn can stroll over to the Farmers Market and select seasonal produce to take home or enjoy collecting the ingredients for a lunch on the beach or for a picnic at a local park. The adjacent parking lot (in front of the firehouse) hosts craftspeople offering a selection of merchandise, too. Jewelry, clothing, toys…are some of the wares you may find there.
The Ocean City Farmers Market is open every Wednesday in July and August – some farmers set up stands in the fall, too. We will be happy to provide guests with current information. See below for a fun way to engage children when visiting the market.
Great post about getting children involved and interested in visiting a Farmer’s Market including a downloadable BINGO game from the “SIMPLE homemade” blog.
