Two weeks ago, I offered a thought about a new kind of resolution, once that can support healthy eating habits, local economies and the Garden State in general.
“In 2018, Eat NJ Every Day,” I wrote: “Eat at least one food every day that’s grown by farmers in New Jersey, that is made with ingredients grown in New Jersey, that is fished from Jersey’s shores by our fishermen and women, that is from farmers who tend to livestock raised in our state, or that otherwise uses Garden State ingredients.”
While I offered some suggestions for doing just that even during the winter months, readers had even more suggestions.
One idea pointed out to me that bears your time—and attendance—is the Morris County Winter Market, which takes place Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm at the Alexander Hamilton School, 24 Mills Street in Morristown. The winter market will be open—with the exception of April 1—through April 15.
Which farmers and what vendors are regularly at the markets? It’s a long list that includes: Apple Ridge Farm & Stone Oven, Bay Berry Bliss, Buffalo Girl NJ, Chickdee Creek Farm, Glenmalure Farm, Grow it Green Morristown, Jarred Fresh, LL Pittenger Farm, Local 130 Seafood, Maria’s Gourmet Edibles, Mishti Chocolates, Paolos Kitchen, Pickle Licious, Pies and Quiches, Simple Soupreme, Stefan’s LLC, Team Thyme Sweets and Savory, The Guac Spot, The Salad Basket, Top of the Basket, Valley Fall Farm and Valley Shepherd Creamery.
There are market specials every week; if you sign up for e-mail alerts at morriswinterfarmersmarket.com, you can receive a heads-up on what’s featured any given Sunday.That’s a well-rounded lineup to help with your meal planning.
