THE MARKET: Overview
Fresh Produce, Plants, & Baked Goods
When you shop at Stony Hill Farm Market, youíll only find Jersey Fresh fruits and vegetables. Weíve changed our production schedule and will be planting more vegetables earlier. So youíll find more vegetables grown by us for you. If we donít grow it ourselves, a local Jersey farmer does. We donít stock bananas or other exotic fruit, but we donít think youíll mind supporting local New Jersey farmers and buying just-picked fruits and vegetables that only traveled a few yards (or a few miles) rather than a few thousand miles. Be sure to also visit us at tailgate markets!
In addition to produce, youíll find the market stocked with a variety of plants, including 4-inch annuals, perennials, vegetable plants and herb plants, plus hanging baskets. We grow all of the plants in the greenhouses at our other location, Stony Hill Gardens.
As you enter the market, you may notice an enticing aroma wafting into the market from our bakery. Carol may have just pulled a freshly baked pie or batch of cookies from the oven.
While you browse our farm store, youíll notice our selection of farm gifts, as well as the selection of gourmet items.
During the fall, we add apples, peaches, winter squash, and other fruit to our produce mix. We also offer pumpkins, gourds, Indian corn, corn stalks, straw bales, mums and other items for fall decorating. After Thanksgiving, itís time to get ready for Christmas. We buy premium Christmas trees from superb growers who cut the trees for us the day before we pick them up. Other Christmas items include wreaths (plain and decorated), roping, and Boxwood Trees.
