The Morris County Park Commission and Fosterfields Living Historical Farm partner with the Foodshed Alliance Famers’ Access Network, Sustainable Morristown, and local farmers to bring a monthly winter farmers market to Morris County. The market, open from 10am to 2pm, is located in the Visitors Center at Fosterfields Living Historical Farm on 73 Kahdena Road in Morris Township, offering fresh, locally produced goods for purchase on the second Sunday of every month through May (1/11, 2/8, 3/8, 4/12, 5/10). Products will include meats, cheeses, artisan breads, prepared foods, honey, preserves, and winter produce grown by farmers within the Foodshed Alliance.
With the help of the Foodshed Alliance, Sustainable Morristown, and the Morris County Park Commission, locally produced goods are available for purchase at a convenient location throughout the colder months. As Mark Sutherland, Manager of Historic Sites, stated, “Supporting our local farmers is so important to us here at Fosterfields. In the winter months, finding a place to purchase these goods becomes a challenge due to the lack of farmers markets. It gives me great pleasure to be a part of the effort to bring locally grown and raised products to Morris County through all the seasons.”
