The Roseland Farmers’ Market offers residents and guests a chance to enjoy “Jersey Fresh” products, to meet and learn from local farmers and artisans in a fun family friendly environment. “We’re are proud of what we are building and truly offer everything from soup to nuts at our market,” said Linda Insabella, Roseland Environmental Commission, Green Team and Farmers’ Market Committee Member.
“Our market is a place to celebrate the Garden State and all that it has to offer. It is also a great place to meet friends and neighbors and provide the community with access to fresh food, allow them the opportunity to develop relationships with local growers, raise awareness about the food system and promote healthy eating habits,” said John Fitzgerald, Green Team and Farmers’ Market Committee Member.
