North Bergen’s annual farmers market is going strong in James J. Braddock North Hudson Park, sponsored this year by the Nicholas J. Sacco Foundation and Freeholder Anthony Vainieri. Hundreds of residents and visitors have been turning out each weekend since July to enjoy the selection of farm-fresh goods and other treats.
In addition to delicious locally grown produce, vendors offering tasty treats include Big Papa Smoke’m, Lizzmonade, and Gourmet Nuts & Dried Fruit LLC. Visitors can buy roasted corn, freshly grilled burgers, dogs, and shish kebabs, fresh mozzarella and imported Italian delicacies, or gourmet pickles and olives.
The farmers market will continue to run every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through Sept. 25. This year the market is located near the north entrance of the park, across from the Veterans area by White Castle. This location was chosen because of the ample parking and plentiful room for vendors. Stop by and shop for healthy food options or grab a bite to eat from one of the vendors.
