The Pennington Farmers Market will begin its ninth season on Saturday, May 27. Dedicated to providing local growers and producers a chance to sell directly to the community and neighbors, the market is also a place to gather as a community, learn about sustainable living and appreciate the arts. It is a chance to buy the freshest produce, grassfed beef, local honey, wine, sauerkraut, tangy Jamaican wraps, native plants, and Uncle Ed’s ice cream.

Local artists will be featured each week, in collaboration with the Hopewell Valley Arts Council, beginning with Peter Pearson, whose stained glass will be on display for the Market’s opening day. This week, Mike & Laura Tusay will be providing the music.
In the “Community Tents” this week, a Jamboree Girl Scout Troop and Princeton Healthcare will have representatives present and
