Seventh Annual Local Harvest Winter Market
The 7th Annual Indoor Winter Market will be held Sunday, February 1 (snow date: February 8) from noon to 4 p.m. at The Woodland in Maplewood. Sponsored by Slow Food Northern New Jersey (Slow Food NNJ) in partnership with Maplewood Loves Wellness, the event will bring together more than 20 local farmers, food artisans, and like-minded organizations for an afternoon of sustainably, locally produced foods to stock up on for the winter. The $3 admission donation will help fund Slow Food NNJ’s School Vegetable Garden programs. The group will be signing up teachers, parents, and school administrators for materials and fundraising support. Slow Food NNJ has been able to provide 30 grants for such gardens in the past six years.
Visitors can purchase seasonal vegetables and fruit, grass-fed beef, pork, lamb, goat, pastured poultry, eggs, cheese, breads, and prepared foods from local growers and producers. Participating groups include Appleridge Farm, Churutabis Farm, Stryker Farm, Tassot Apiary, Phillips Farm, Bobolink Dairy & Bakeyard, and Cherry Grove.
