New Jersey Farmers Markets on the Rise
In 2001, there were just 35 farmers markets in New Jersey and last year there were 148 in the Garden State. Markets are expanding in urban and rural areas as people are looking for locally grown, quality food that tastes better than what they can buy in the supermarket.
Keebler, who lives in nearby Andover Township, said she wanted a product that was both fresh and produced locally.
"I wanted better quality and I think we need to have a closer relationship with our food," she said.
"And," she said of the sausages, "they taste so much better."
