Sussex County Farmers Market

farmers market

A brand new farmers market opened in the summer of 2009 at the Sussex County Fairgrounds at 37 Plains Road in Augusta. One of only a handful of New Jersey farmers markets housed in a permanent building, the new market offers Jersey Fresh products every Saturday from 9am to 2pm through November.

This building was made possible through Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen’s efforts to procure federal funding dedicated toward economic development in Sussex County. The Sussex County Board of Chosen Freeholders elected to make this available to the agricultural community. The federal funding, plus significant donations of materials and labor, have resulted in a barn style 40'x70' market located near the main entrance to the Fairgrounds. A permanent sign thanking all those contributors is on display at the market. Only Sussex County farmers participate, and all products are either Sussex County grown or Jersey Fresh.

Make this your one stop shopping for fresh picked that day vegetables and fruits! Also available are perennials, cut flowers, dried flowers, eggs, honey, goat milk soap, value added jams, jellies, pickles and more, meat and cheese. When you taste the difference fresh picked makes, you’ll definitely make this a regular Saturday stop. Click for further information and participants.

Cindy and Karen, did either of you ever find a NJ or NY source for Luther Hill Corn? I can remember having that delicious sweet corn as a teen visiting in Belvidere New Jersey. Oh it was so good - I would love to have an ear or two one more time!

Growing up in Sussex County, in the 50s and 60s, I was privileged to enjoy Luther Hill corn.\r\nI plan on returning to the area and understand this corn is "on the endangered list". \r\nAre there any growers still left, that could provide me with a taste of history. I would be looking for next season - summer/fall of 2014. I am not a farmer, and am well noted for my "brown thumb" so purchase of seed would be useless to me. I want to taste the real thing once again.
