Growing since 2000
Collingswood Farmers’ Market’s participating farmers value the opportunity to interact with the people who eat the food they grow. Their presence in our community emphasizes the role New Jersey farming plays in preservation of our landscapes, lifestyles, nutrition, and our local food supply.
Now into our second decade, the Market has become an established part of the social fabric of the community. People come to walk, meet their neighbors, and socialize while they shop for their weekly produce and more. And it’s not just farms—local vendors and activities help make the Market a vibrant and fun destination every Saturday, May through Thanksgiving.
The sooner you can get produce after it’s harvested, the better its freshness, nutrition and flavor. The quality of the produce is superior and the atmosphere is wonderful! The successful weekly Market is also an important link in the local food chain. By providing a venue for selling directly to the consumer, the business of farming is strengthened for the small family-owned farms that are characteristic of our region.
Come on down to the Market, meet the growers, and take advantage of the wonderful harvests they have to offer!
Our Market features the highest quality in-season local produce. And more. Different every week—wonderful things are discovered by those who explore.

Patrons can sit in our cafe area and have coffee and hot breakfast sandwiches. Local musicians play live music. Each year the Market strives to offer a variety of Jersey Fresh products and locally-produced items. As the growing season progresses, each new Saturday offers something different.
Our Market carries local produce and flowers rain or shine every Saturday. Vendors with rain-sensitive items, the information tent, and live music are weather-permitting.
DON’T FORGET, we are open in November! No, you won’t find corn, or strawberries, or peaches in November, and it might be too cold for live music, but the farmers are still harvesting. It is a time for late season crops and year-round agricultural products such as meat, cheese, and honey. Our local prepared foods vendors have plenty of items, and it is the only month when we host crafters. The Saturday before Thanksgiving dinner is a must-go tradition for many–a popular date regardless of the weather.
