There are many signs that herald the arrival of summer. Besides the weather, people coming out of winter hibernation in droves, the profusion of flowers in bloom, the colorful dresses with an edge of playfulness and so much more. But here in the Princeton area nothing screams the arrival of summer louder than the local farmers’ market that opens up in May and winds down on the last Saturday before Thanksgiving (November). In our family, it has become a ritual to start our Saturday mornings with a visit to the market. If there is a place where the smells and sights produce a state of gastronomic nirvana, this ranks high up there. To learn more about our local farmers market, click here.
We’d love to hear about the farmers’ markets in your town. So please write in or send in a photo. Here is a quick visual journey through ours.

Thanks for the nice write up! As you know, the West Windsor Farmers’ Market is the “find” of this town! Now, if we could only get the rest of the town to join us every Saturday. One slight correction to your piece, we are open up until the Saturday before Thanksgiving! Thanks again!
It is lovely to get your feedback and thanks for featuring us on your Facebook page. I have made the correction and am happy that we now have a bit longer to experience the market each year. I wish everyone else in town would join us as well. What else could be more important than indulging your family with good food close to the source? PS. I just realized that we are connected through our kids in the same school district as well!
