Nutley Farmers Market
|Tweets by NutleyFM|
The Nutley Farmers Market, established in 2009, features live musical entertainment and a wide variety of fresh regionally-grown produce, as well as cut flowers, homemade cheese, dried fruit and fresh nuts, pickles, bread and more. The market helps New Jersey family farmers; enables people to meet, talk to and ask questions of the person who grew their food; brings shoppers into our local business districts; and is a great place to meet friends and neighbors.
The Market runs Sundays from mid-June through October of each season and takes place in Downtown Nutley in Municipal Parking Lot 9 at 537 Franklin Avenue, from 9am to 2pm.

Nutley Farmers Market Walk & Talk helps Market patrons get fit AND informed during their weekly visit to the Market.
Every Sunday during the Market season, walkers can join a featured leader for a 3-mile scenic loop. During the walk, participants can ask the leader questions within their area of expertise in a relaxed, informal setting. Walkers meet at the Nutley Farmers Market at 8:15am, step off at 8:30am, and return to the Market to stock up for the week ahead.
Market Walk & Talk leaders come from a wide variety of disciplines, including health, wellness, fitness, education, government, law, art, design, writing, and more.
Market Walk & Talk is funded in part by a grant to the Nutley Department of Health from Partners for Health Foundation whose mission is to make our communities healthier, better places to live.

Special Events at the Market
Special events take place throughout the season such as demonstrations, contests, book signings, art-making, and outreach days with community organizations and school groups. Sponsored by the Department of Public Works, special recycling days focus on items that aren't picked up during our regular curbside collection.
Further supporting access to healthy foods for all, our EBT Machine gives eligible residents (SNAP, WIC, FMNP) more opportunity to purchase fresh fruits, vegetables, and packaged foods. Supported by a grant from New Jersey Healthy Communities Network funded by Partners for Health Foundation.
Help neighbors in need by bringing donations of non-perishable food or funds to stock the NFSB Food Pantry. Donations of fresh produce also welcome every other Market.
The Township of Nutley is partnering with Essex County's Department of Health & Senior Services to provide financial assistance for senior citizens in the Township through the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program. We will be doubling SFMNP vouchers so our eligible seniors will receive an additional $25!
