The Highland Park Farmers Market runs Fridays, mid-June through early November, 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the municipal parking lot between 2nd and 3rd Avenue on Raritan.
The New Jersey Council of Farms and Communities (NJ-CFC) inspects and certifies the farmers who participate in the Highland Park Farmers Market. The Highland Park Farmers Market farmers and vendors feature CERTIFIED Jersey Fresh produce, grown on their own land. Main Street Highland Park staff manages the Downtown Farmers Market.
This year, the Market begins on Friday, June 15, 2012. And will stay open until 5:30 each market day (previous closing time had been 5:00)
Market Hours: 11:30 - 5:30
The focus of the Downtown Farmers Market is the New Jersey growers. Some vendors, however, sell baked items, cut flowers. Below is a list of vendors from last year.

I've only purchasd once; but there was such a variety of home made goods available. Great prices!
