2nd Annual Trunk or Treat

We'd love for you to join us for our upcoming Trunk of Treat, Ruth!

It will be held on Saturday, October 30th, 2021, at 80 Main Street in West Orange, NJ.

As with all of our events, there is no admission fee. 

Costumed guests (even Fido) can visit all of the decorated cars to collect candy. 

Guests will get to vote by text message for their favorite trunks who are competing for a $100 grand prize, and 3 $50 prize categories.

Vendors around the Farmer's Market will also be handing out candy.

The Farmer's Market booth will be participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project and will have allergy friendly candy and fun non-food items for the kids.

We are also participating in Rubicon's Trick Or Trash project. There will be a box on site that is used to collect empty candy wrappers. At the end of the event, the box will be mailed to Rubicon to be recycled. Feel free to bring your own candy wrappers for the box if you've already started enjoying some candy!

There will also be live music by the Howlin' Poets.
It may be loud

What do you say, want to make a TON of kids happy after another crazy year?!

Let's do it...



It's Also Our Last Day

Sadly, October 30th is also our last day for this season.

Be sure to stock up on pickles, spices, ice pops, and so much more. 

It's been a whirlwind year and we appreciate everyone who visited the Market and supported our vendors. 

We look forward to seeing you all again in 2022 in continuing our journey to become not only the community hub, but in also providing all of our neighbors with fresh, locally grown produce and gourmet treats made with love.

Keep your eyes peeled in the next few weeks for our annual post-season survey...we want to know if we're living up to all expectations.

With much love and appreciation,
Stacey, Rob, and Finn
