There are some definitely NEW additions to the Woodbridge Farmer's Market menu this year!
The Woodbridge Farmer's Market opens today in Parker Press Park. You may notice some new additions to the menu that had previously consisted of fresh fruits, vegetables, and baked goods for sale to township residents. There will be barbequed items now available for purchase, as well as a 'beer and wine garden' at the public park. The township released the news in a flyer on the Woodbridge website. There was no indication what barbequed items would be offered, or the extent and manner in which the 'beer and wine garden' would be operated. The Farmer's Market runs every Wednesday through September 26; the hours are 3 pm to 8:30 pm. The market and the alcohol sales will coincide with free concerts in the park, which start at 7 pm.
