Park Commission Press Releases

Fresh, Local, Food, All Year Long
MORRISTOWN, NJ – The Morris County Park Commission and Fosterfields Living Historical Farm partner with the Foodshed Alliance Farmers’ Access Network, Sustainable Morristown, and local farmers to bring a monthly winter farmers’ market to Morris County. Beginning Sunday, December 14, the Winter Farmers’ Market will offer a variety of fresh, locally-produced goods for purchase on the second Sunday of every month through May (12/14, 1/11, 2/8, 3/8, 4/12, 5/10). Products will include meats, cheeses, artisan breads, prepared foods, honey, preserves, and winter produce grown by farmers within the Foodshed Alliance.

It is more important than ever to eat and shop locally. With the help of the Foodshed Alliance, Sustainable Morristown, and the Morris County Park Commission, locally-produced goods are available for purchase at a convenient location, throughout the colder months. Mark Sutherland, Manager of Historic Sites, stated, “Supporting our local farmers is so important to us here at Fosterfields. In the winter months finding a place to purchase these goods becomes a challenge due to the lack of famers’ markets. It gives me great pleasure to be a part of the effort to bring locally grown and raised products to Morris County through all the seasons.’

The Market is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and is located in the Visitors Center at Fosterfields Living Historical Farm on 73 Kahdena Road in Morris Township. For more information on the participating farms and products please visit, or email
