Guinea Pig Visits Jersey Greenmarket

June 1st, 2008 · No Comments ·

I biked to Schiferstein Farm Market, which is located 3 miles away from my house approximately, last Friday. Schieferstein farm market is not big yet provides ample organic and locally grown produce. Not only does finding a local farmer market give me a chance to taste the freshest food, but I also can get involved with the local agriculture community and learn about farming.

Essentials for going to a farmer market: a note pad and a pen (for recording down prices, farmer’s answers to my questions, etc), water, few used plastic bags, paper bags, and a backpack.

Route to Schieferstein Farm Market

What the farm used to look like.

Welcome to Schieferstein Farm Market!

String beans. I have neither seen nor tasted white string beans until last week.

Summer’s here! Zucchini and yellow squash.

Fresh strawberries smell great even they are 5 feet away from your nose.

Items that I picked up. I will be honest, these apricots and peaches are from California (too far to be considered local). But I just had a craving for other juicy fruits, besides the locally grown apples I have been eating in the last couple months.

Total Spending: $9.00 approximately.
