Cumberland County's Other Side

Farm Markets

Found throughout the county, small stands and large outdoor markets offer the best of New Jersey's produce, demonstrating why it is called "The Garden State." The Vineland Produce Auction provides a market for over 40 different varieties of produce between April and November, bringing in farm products from six southern New Jersey counties. Tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, corn, peaches, and melons are among the area's specialities.
