South Jersey farmers markets opening dates for May 2012

The Glassboro Marketplace opened earlier this month with a noticeable lack of farmers. It’s not any fault of the market organizers. It was simply too early in the season for the farmers to have anything to sell yet. What a difference a month will make, though. In May, several local farmers markets will open, and there will be asparagus, spinach, radishes, lettuces, and much more from New Jersey’s farmers.

Here’s a list of the opening dates for our local farmers markets in May. Many more will open in June. If I’m missing a market, please let me know in the comments.
