Food co-ops and farmer's market are not a new thing but I recently read an article in the New York Times about the growing popularity of “green gardens” being planted on urban rooftops in the city. IN a similar fashion to CSA's, the residents share in duties of caring for the plots and also share the wealth of the food they grow.
Soon the Montclair Farmer’s Market will open at the Walnut St. Train Station and I’m counting down the days. Nothing puts a smile on my face like a Saturday morning at the market pursuing the fresh fruits and vegetables while sipping the best organic iced coffee from Esther’s Treats. I feel incredibly lucky to have this once a week opportunity in Montclair to visit some of the best farm and fresh food vendors in Northern New Jersey. One can walk from table to table and plan a meal for every night incorporating colorful food that was picked just hours prior.
Just another plus about living in this vibrant and truly happening suburb. Follow this link to learn more about Living in Montclair.
