West Windsor Community Farmers Market – Market Events May 2017
West Windsor, NJ, April 17, 2017 —The fourteenth year of the West Windsor Community
Farmers Market kicks off on Saturday, May 6 at 9:00am at the Vaughn Drive Commuter Lot in
West Windsor. With sixteen regional farms, twelve artisan food and natural product vendors,
weekly community groups, live music, special events and cooking demonstrations, the WWCFM
continues to be New Jersey’s favorite farmers market* and place to spend Saturday mornings.
The market runs weekly, rain or shine from 9:00am-1:00pm until the Saturday before
Thanksgiving.
Joining the WWCFM this season is Local 130 Seafood, advocates for responsibly raised
domestic aquaculture, with offerings of fresh and local wild caught seafood.
In addition to our newest vendor, find seasonal, locally grown fruit, vegetables, mushrooms,
pastured meats and poultry, cheese, milk and farm fresh eggs, woven fiber products, fresh
pasta, breads, baked goods including gluten/grain/sugar-free selections, flowers, bedding
plants, honey, prepared foods, soap, herbs, teas and seasonings, sauces, jams, pickled
vegetables and wine. Breakfast and lunch selections include savory and sweet crepes, locally
sourced egg sandwiches and fresh pressed juice and acai bowls. Remember to bring your
knives, scissors and lawn tools for sharpening at Nice and Sharp, on-site weekly.
The WWCFM accepts SNAP/EBT and offers matching incentives up to $20 towards fruit and
vegetable purchases for food assistance shoppers. Shoppers using SNAP should visit the
Market Information Tent to swipe their EBT card to obtain market tokens for shopping
throughout the marketplace.
The Market continues to sell Market Bucks tokens for shoppers short on cash; simply swipe any
major credit or debit card and receive tokens to spend at any farm or vendor.
Of note: Opening Day events include the traditional walk from the back of Maurice Hawk School
to the Market by the West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance, and the Yes, We Can
volunteers will be collecting any type of cold/hot cereal to benefit Arm in Arm Pantry of Mercer
County.
Later in May (20), the West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance will host a Learn to Bike
event for children, and the Market will host our annual Spring Safety & Services Day with West
Windsor and Princeton Junction fire, police, emergency and public works vehicles on site for
children to touch, climb on and meet the friendly neighborhood officers in the community.
The Market is located in the Vaughn Drive Parking Lot of the southbound side of the Princeton
Junction Train Station, one mile from the Alexander Road and Route 1 intersection or half a mile
walk down Vaughn Drive from the Dinky stop. Ample car and bicycle parking is available. Use
2 Vaughn Drive, West Windsor in your GPS and the market is located at the 2nd driveway on the
right as you enter Vaughn Drive.
*Since 2012, the WWCFM has been voted the Top Celebrated Market in New Jersey and a Top
100 Most Celebrated Market Nationwide, in American Farmland Trust’s I Love My Farmers
Market Contest.
