“The Stone Harbor Farmer’s Market has truly become a destination event for residents and visitors throughout the southern New Jersey seashore region”, said Stone Harbor Councilwoman Joan Kramar.  “This year, several new vendors will join the market offering fresh produce, meats, desserts and other items grown in and indigenous to southern New Jersey.  You can have breakfast at the Market, and take home everything from salads to produce to breads and pasta to prepare a complete dinner”.

The debut of the 2014 Stone Harbor’s Farmer’s Market on June 15th will include some extra giveaways and entertainment for the public.  The event will feature a special parsley ribbon cutting at 9:00am where attendees will be able to receive a sample of the parsley along with a reusable grocery style bag decked out with the Borough’s Centennial logo.  Live music with a performance by Jeff Nowmos, Guitarist and entertainment will be provided by local radio station WCZT 98.7FM the Coast which will broadcast live from the Market.
