Food lovers and professional chefs flock to the Trenton Farmers Market for farm-fresh produce, beautiful flowers, and interesting vendors. The Market is open all year round. Depending on the season, the days, hours and vendors vary, so call ahead or check their website before visiting.
The Market was started in 1939 by New Jersey farmers who incorporated as The Trenton Market Growers Co-op Association. They sold their produce from open-air stalls on land they purchased on Spruce Street. The existing Market building opened in 1948.
When the weather is nice, the Market’s overhead doors open, giving the space an outdoor feeling. Through the years, the vendors expanded from the original farmers. Today, the market features nine fresh fruit and vegetable vendors; five bakeries; two meat and cold cut vendors; a fishmonger; two peanut, candy and snack vendors; and three specialty shops.
Market patrons who work up an appetite, can sit and enjoy a meal or snack at one of four Food Court vendors. Special events like Stoltzfus Bakery’s pig roast always draws a crowd. Professional chefs frequent the market, too, for specialty items such as the wide variety of peppers available in the summer. In the fall, savvy families know the market is the premiere spot to pick a large and reasonably priced pumpkin.
