Applications for the 2016 Brigantine Farmers Market are now being accepted. When a final list of vendors has been prepared we will list them here as well as on the Brigantine Farmers Market Face Book page. To become a vendor go to the Vendor drop-down under the Farmers Market tab on the Home Page.
The Brigantine Farmers Market will open on Saturday, May 28, 2016 for its third season. The Market will be open every Saturday through September 3, 2016 (rain or shine, except for declared weather emergencies). Market hours will be 8:30 a.m. to noon. Included in the 2016 season will be an Autumn Market on Saturday, October 8, 2016 with hours from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
The Market is held on Revere Boulevard between 15th and 16th Streets. All spaces will be outside. The location is between two main thoroughfares in Brigantine and steps away from the central business district.
The primary goals of this Market are:
- Provide local access for acquiring fresh and healthy food
- Support and promote local growers and business
- Enhance foot traffic and exposure for Brigantine businesses
- Increase community awareness of sustainability by interacting with farms and artisans
- Raise community socialization.
Backed by the City of Brigantine, the Brigantine Farmers Market Committee (the “Committee”), a sub-committee of the Brigantine Green Team operates and is involved in all aspects of the Market.
The City of Brigantine is one of New Jersey’s premier destinations with miles of coastline and beautiful beaches that are the driving force behind our economy. During the summer, people flock to Brigantine increasing our population to 25,000-30,000 creating a busy beach community with people from NJ, NY, and PA. Residents and visitors enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle while spending hours outdoors enjoying the sand and smell of the fresh ocean air. Brigantine’s initial 2014 Market season proved an extremely successful community farmers market.
