Farmers’ Markets are no longer just a summer event. Here in Hudson County, we love having access to fresh, locally sourced produce + goods all year round – they don’t call this the Garden State for nothing. As of January 12th, the 3rd Annual HDSID winter farmers market is back with fresh produce and artisanal goods. Running every Thursday until April 20th, the market will be in downtown Jersey City from 4PM to 6PM by the Grove Street PATH station.
