Tis the Season to Buy Jersey
If you've got a summertime memory of enjoying farm fresh produce, feel free to share it with us, or just read some memories from other folks who love Jersey Produce. The drive-in movies may be gone, but we can still get that special feeling from a farm fresh Jersey Tomato.
Jersey Fresh produce are picked at the peak of ripeness and you can buy them shortly after they're picked. For ideas on how to use your New Jersey Produce, see below for recipes. If your supermarket doesn't sell Jersey Fresh, ask for it! Or make your shopping a special event and visit a community farm market or farmstand, or plan a special outing with the kids to a pick-your-own farm. To find Jersey Fresh near you, see links below.
