Green Foods to Try on St. Patrick’s Day in Hoboken + Jersey City

Written by:

Ah yes, St. Patrick’s Day – a holiday that Hoboken loves and also loves to hate. But from epic festivities all weekend long and live music performances, there’s still something exciting about this Irish holiday on the actual day these days, sorry Leprecon {or it might be the fact that it’s the first sign of spring + spring activities in the city}. Of course, no event in the Mile Square could go by without some fun, festive food. From green bagels to Leprechaun bowls, read on for a roundup of the best green foods to try in Hoboken + Jersey City this weekend.
