New Jersey Produce Calendar. Ever tried to buy blueberries at a local New Jersey produce market in April, only to find they’re not available? That’s because although blueberries can be found in grocery stores year round, they’re truly in season in the summer, between June and August.We’ve created an in-season produce calendar for New Jersey so you can easily see when it’s the right time to find the freshest asparagus, or if you’ve missed sweet corn season. https://www.farmflavor.com/new-jersey/whats-growing-new-jersey-produce-calendar/

South Jersey's cold winter weather continued into spring and, because of this, many farmers say that they're at least one to three weeks behind on their crops. Southern states such as Florida and Georgia are finishing out their growing seasons at their normal times, but northern states such as New York and Pennsylvania are getting an even later start than South Jersey due to even harsher conditions.
Mark it on your calendars! Saturday, September 9 from 10AM-1PM at the Merchantville Farmers Market, Safe Kids of Southern New Jersey will be performing Car Seat Inspections for Merchantville Residents.
