Tropical Farm Fresh Friday

Okay, so I’ll be honest.  The only thing tropical about this post is that I am on vacation in Punta Cana and I’m sharing a post about my latest farmers market experience.
But veggies are almost as good as a tropical island. Almost?

This farmers market is located in Haddonfield, NJ, at Kings Court, 150 Kings Highway East.  It takes place every Saturday through October 8, rain or shine!

While I have visited this cute, quaint town many times, it was the first time that I was actually visiting the farmers market.

There are those white eggplants again!

It was fairly small but there were a ton of great products to look at.

And everything looked really fresh and there were many varieties of fruits and veggies.

I found these mushrooms the most interesting.  It seemed a little unusual to see oyster mushrooms at a farmers market but I loved that they are available.

I was also able to try some of this long bean salad, which was amazing.  (Made with the long beans pictured above.)  It tasted a little spicy and there was definitely some basil in there.  Why didn’t I ask for the recipe?!

This market was especially fun because there were so many other vendors and stores that set up tents and tables along the street that you could wander around all morning checking out the different items.  Kind of a two for one deal.
And if you’re ever visiting the Collingswood farmers market, you should definitely check out this one!  Or vice versa.  They are so very close but unique in their own way.
Enjoy your weekend while I bask in the sun!

  1. Oh Good Lord! I’m so glad to see such expensive farmer’s market produce in a place other than my own state! $7.50 for a watermelon?! Geez Louise!
    Anyway, hope you’re having fun of your vacation and thanks for sharing–great photos! :)

    • I know, isn’t it crazy!? I didn’t even realize the price until I saw your comment. I can buy them for $5 at another market but sometimes it is a high price to pay for local food!
