It’s National Farmers Market Week! Farmers markets increase access to nutritious local food and serve as healthy community spaces.
America’s Grow-a-Row partners with over 20 organizations to host Free Farm Markets in underserved communities in Camden, East Orange, Hunterdon County, Jersey City, Morristown, Newark, and Trenton in New Jersey, and Bethlehem and Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, among others.
