E-commerce connects local farms to local families
Launched in 2020, My Community Market, a program of Edible Jersey, is a trusted online marketplace that allows consumers to source, learn about, and directly buy from New Jersey farms, food producers, and local food- and drink-related businesses.
In light of the current COVID-19 crisis, My Community Market’s services will focus exclusively on farmers’ markets and their vendors until further notice.
Farmers’ markets have long been considered one of New Jersey’s most important food resources. This was underscored by Governor Murphy’s recent directive designating farmers’ market as an essential service during the crisis period. While allowing consumer access to healthy, fresh and nutritious food, they also provide critical financial support to sustain Garden State farmers. Farmers’ markets represent the best of food + community.
Most community farmers markets open for the 2020 season in early May. A number of communities also conduct Winter markets on a limited schedule.
