If you’re from the Garden State, then you know that there are a number of farms in the great state of New Jersey. Other states may not agree with our agricultural nickname, but that’s probably because they haven’t tried one of our delicious tomatoes!
Monmouth County residents definitely know the importance of eating locally grown food. Not only is it delicious and fresh, but it helps support local farmers and businesses! There are also studies that show it has interesting benefits. Some doctors suggest eating local honey to combat seasonal allergies!
This is why Monmouth County has an abundance of great farmers markets which run throughout the autumn. So stock up on squash and other fall favorites before they close up shop for the season, and check out our list of some of the best farmers markets in the area.
