Here at PrincetonScoop we like it FRESH. We’ve scouted out some of the best local farms and farmer’s markets that are soon to be bursting with delicious crops, some organic and all definitely delicious. We suggest joining a CSA for sure, though we enjoy checking out the weekly markets for freshly prepared foods, flowers and more.
Make a plan, grab a friend and get in on the goodness.
They don’t call New Jersey the Garden State” for nothing…
