South Orange Farmers Market Postponed Indefinitely
The South Orange Village Center Alliance (SOVCA) announced the indefinite postponement of the 2020 South Orange Farmers Market in the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“It is with deep regret that we make this announcement,” said SOVCA Executive Director, Julie Doran, “We considered many options and weighed our decision carefully. We believe that at this time our resources need to be focused on supporting our brick and mortar businesses and planning for a successful reopening of our downtown.”
Shoppers will still be able to get their Jersey Fresh produce and other goods locally. A few of the local businesses have marketplaces stocked with fresh fruits, vegetables and other essential items including Ashley Marketplace, Jackie's Marketplace and Groceries on the Go by David Burke Orange Lawn. You can also find some of your favorite vendors from the South Orange Farmers Market at the Maplewood Farmers Market on Mondays starting in June.
SOVCA will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely and amend our market plans if resources allow. Please sign up for the Village Vibe and check back frequently for updates.
