We are always searching for new ways to improve the quality of life in Brigantine and drive more visitors to our island. The Brigantine Green Team, in partnership with the City of Brigantine, is holding its Farmers Market this summer from May 27 through September 2 in the heart of the Brigantine business district on Revere Ave between 15th and 16th streets. This important effort will:
- Support local growers
- Enhance foot traffic and exposure for Brigantine businesses
- Provide local access for residents and visitors to acquire fresh and healthy food
- Increase community awareness by interacting with businesses, farms and artisans
- Increase community socialization
Recent studies show that 60% of Farmers Market shoppers also visited nearby local stores on the same day they visited a Farmers Market. Of those, 60% said that they visited those additional stores only on days that they visit the Market. This information helps solidify the value of this effort to the local business community.
The Brigantine Green Team is a committee founded under Sustainable Jersey, a certification program for New Jersey municipalities that want to go green, save money and take steps to sustain their quality of life over the long term.
