Trenton, NJ —  The 2017 Capital City Farmers Market will be offering hand-crafted teas, produce, sweet treats, cold pressed juices, prepared foods and more!  This longtime running market held in the heart of downtown Trenton, Mill Hill Park, has become a lunchtime oasis for anyone in the downtown area, workers and residents alike.  The market runs for six months and is set to start on Thursday, May 11th and run until October 26th, from 11 am – 2 pm in Historic Mill Hill Park, located at 165 East Front St. 

More than just a lunchtime destination for those in the downtown Trenton area, the Capital City Farmers Market has become an incubator for local entrepreneurs and newer small businesses to grow their customer base and eventually open up a storefront.  Ever growing, the market attracts over 2,000 patrons each week, offering a small glimpse into what makes Trenton great.

What’s new?

Cream Ridge Winery, in operation since 1988, the Cream Ridge Winery will be joining the farmers market, offering their stellar award winning wines to our patrons.  Marchese Farm, a small family run farm located in Hopewell is run by Catherine Marchese and recently began the transition from conventional farming practices to organic.  The Cheesecake Lady has returned! Lisa Parysz, of Hamilton Square, has been missed!  Shibumi Farm is a sustainable mushroom farm based out of Princeton that grows over 35 varieties of mushrooms. Other new vendors will be confirmed in the weeks to come!

As if the excitement for the market to resume wasn’t enough, June 29th marks the opening day for Levitt Amp Trenton.  Starting just a few hours after the market ends in Mill Hill Park, our 10 week music series will feature live entertainment from 5-8pm from June 29th -August 31st.  Mark your calendars because Thursday’s will become your favorite days of the week. 

The Capital City Farmers Market is what it is today because of the dedication of our longstanding vendors.  We are pleased to have the following vendors returning to the market, Asprocolas Acres, Q’s Cookies, The Salad Basket, Arlee’s Raw Blends, Buttery Sensations, The Garvey School, Tea-For-All, Studio B Bakery and Bistro, Nutty Novelties, CLEB Jewelry, and Al Francis Fashions.

The Capital City Farmers Market was launched in 1994.  Since then, our organization, the Trenton Downtown Association (TDA), has been bringing local farmers, specialty food vendors and healthy food options to the downtown Trenton Area.  The Capital City Farmers Market is held every Thursday in historic Mill Hill Park.  As the 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization chartered to support a more vibrant commercial downtown in New Jersey’s capital city, the TDA supports both commercial activities happening around the downtown and annual events, like the Capital City Farmers Market, that enhance the downtown experience for residents, workers and visitors.
About The Capital City Farmers Market

As we continue our efforts to grow the market, we are looking to add both vendors and sponsors.  We are especially interested in finding additional farmers, locally hand made goods and specialty items, prepared foods, beverages, florists and nurseries as well as more organic produce.  If you have any interest in becoming a vendor or know someone who does, visit our website or simply register here.

We welcome sponsors that are looking to invest in our community and help us expand the CCFM.  For sponsorship details, please refer to our sponsorship card on our website.
