Community Updates: Hammonton (NJ) ... from Ocean City, New Jersey
This is one in a continuing posting of news and interest about other communities nearby Ocean City, New Jersey. Hammonton (NJ) has been of interest to us since our nephew, Chad, married a girl from this community - Jenn. They now reside in a lovely little street just back from the main street going through town ... Grape Street. We can make it up to Hammonton via the Parkway in about a half hour or a bit more depending on traffic. One can also take a more scenic route which is almost the same time frame.
We visit this closest family to us a few times a year saying hello and getting together for a very short time. Our last trip involved stopping at the new restaurant on main street, the Annata Wine Bar, where we had a great lunch and some wonderful wine. We plan to take a group of people back here in the fall for an evening outing to celebrate the end of the summer season.
We also walked the street of Hammonton checking out some of the shops and locations. When one gets out toward the winery at the other end of town from the Parkway, there has been some building with new shops and stores. We also were told of the greta cheese store which we visited during our last trip.
Finally, we also visit the granite company a few years ago to check that location out as we were involved in our kitchen remodeling.
Hammonton has a lot to offer the visitor including some lovely older houses along the main street from one end to the other. Known as the "Blueberry Capital," it certainly produces some fine products throughout the year. It's also the starting point for a trip up through the Pine Barrens to central Jersey.
