Welcome to the Montclair Farmers' Market, an outdoor shopping mecca for locally grown and sourced products. We are proud to be the oldest and largest farmers' market in the State of New Jersey with xx fantastic vendors and many thousands of customers each and every season at our two sites. Come enjoy what is best about living in northern New Jersey -- great locally grown food, music, and community!
We're not just fruits and veggies
We have lots of fruits and vegetables brought to the market directly from their farms, including some that are organically grown. But in addition we have pie vendors, meat purveyors, jams and jellies, food trucks (different ethnic cuisines), and local non-profit tables set up for you to learn about their community involvement and how you can help support them.
Most every week we feature a local restaurant where you can sample items on their menu. You can also watch a food cooking demonstration if you time it right.
We start the season on June 4 so come and join us for a new year of eating healthy!
August 20, 2016, Calling Eligible Seniors:

Double Value Coupon Program of the Garden State Good Food Network:
Montclair Farmers' Market's application to accept SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as Food Stamps) was approved by the USDA's Food and Nutrition Services in the fall of 2014, making us one of 3,000 farmers' markets nationwide to accept SNAP payments.
In 2015, we participated for the first time in a groundbreaking farmers' market nutrition incentive program called the Double Value Coupon Program (DVCP) with partnership support from City Green and funding from Partners for Health Foundation.
In 2016, we are pleased to have once again received funding from Partners for Health Foundation to partner with City Green in the same DVCP, which is part of City Green's Garden State Good Food Network (GSGFN). Here's how it works: For every dollar of federal SNAP benefits and WIC (Women, Infants, Children) and Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition vouchers that a shopper spends at our Market, the DVCP provides matching Good Food Bucks dollars up to $20.00 for purchasing fruits and vegetables.
DVCP addresses the triple bottom line, meaning it is good for the local economy, the environment, and the health of all of our citizens. Thank you City Green and Partners for Health Foundation!
All eligible SNAP, WIC and Senior shoppers must first visit our Market Manager's Table to start shopping and collect their Good Food Bucks for spending on fruits and vegetables.
Our Market's Farm Vendors Donate to Local Emergency Food Programs:
Over the last six years, Montclair Farmers' Market's farmers (Circle Brook Farm, Matarazzo Farms, Sunden's Stone Pointe Farm, Tree-Lious Orchards, and Vacchiano Farm) have been donating excess produce at the end of market day to local emergency food programs, such as First Seventh-Day Adventist Church, The Salvation Army, and Toni's Kitchen. This volunteer-led program was originally developed with United Way of North Essex, now called United Way of Northern New Jersey. Over the last six years, car loads (yes, thousands and thousands of pounds!) of produce have been collected from the farmers on Saturdays and transported to the emergency food programs by volunteers from Montclair State University's AmeriCorp program, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Montclair, and during the last three years by local resident and food justice volunteer, Pamela Arian.
This year, Pam could use help to collect and distribute the excess produce. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to assist her. (It takes about 45-60 minutes on any given Saturday between 2:00-3:00pm, and a car is required.) Thank you!
Montclair Farmers' Market
Montclair was one of the very first towns in the Garden State to host a farmers’ market back in 1993. Since then the health, economic, and environmental benefits of farmers’ markets have enticed towns and cities to follow our lead, which means that access to locally grown food has spread around the state and across the country.
Our vibrant market sites are community gathering spots for thousands of visitors each season. You will find New Jersey farmers and food artisans selling vegetables, fruits, meat, poultry, fish, cheese, prepared foods, baked goods, condiments, honey, wine, pickles, and flowers. AND to make it even more enticing, we have food trucks at the Saturday market as well as great restaurants near both sites! Please visit our vendor page for an evolving list of our market vendors.
