RAMSEY, N.J. – The Ramsey Farmers’ Market just made a list of the best nine farmers’ markets in the country.
The Bergen County market – held in downtown Ramsey at the Main Street Train Station – is the only in New Jersey to make the list. Others on the list include Portland, Oregon, Madison, Wisconsin and Des Moines, Iowa.
Here is what the list had to say about the Ramsey market:
“Brought to you by the Ramsey Historical Association, this market aims to connect the area’s rich farming heritage to modern life … With nearly 100 sponsors, it’s clear the community is on board. The market boasts a wide range of regular vendors, and rotating vendors are active on a monthly basis, or throughout peak season for their respective harvests.”
The list was written by RootsRated – a media platform that connects users with the best outdoor experiences -- for Superfeet.com.
According to the piece, 20 years ago there were less than 2,000 farmers’ markets throughout the country, and there are now more than 8,600 listed with the United States Department of Agriculture.
