    The Brick Farmers’ Market debuts this Saturday along the Metedeconk River. 

    Situated at Windward Beach Park (265 Princeton Avenue), the market will showcase farm-fresh produce and a variety of prepared foods — such as pickled products, baked breads, relishes, pastries, and more — as well as fresh flowers and plants, according to a release from the township. 

    Vegan and organic products will also be available. 

    The market also includes non-food vendors, such as soapmakers and yarn purveyors. Click here for the full list of vendors. 

    “We are excited to bring a farmers’ market to Brick,” Mayor John Ducey said earlier this month. “This market will encourage the community to eat fresh and buy local.”

    Funded through a federal grant, the market will be open between 9:00 a.m. and noon every Saturday beginning April 25 through Sept. 12 (except July 4) weather permitting. 

    Any vendors interested in participating are asked to call (908) 489-0559 or click here
