Downtown Freehold

All Events Cancelled for the month of June, we will keep you updated.


In Downtown Freehold our business owners put you the customer first and are here to serve you.  Please know that many of our restaurants and businesses are still open and ready to serve customers through pick-up and delivery service, phone or Skype consultation, or in person for small businesses by appointments. Please call ahead to get more details from the establishment.

In order to help facilitate pick-up service we have established Pick-Up Rows in the Market Yard and McGackin Triangle Parking lots. Pick-up Rows are designated with signs. When you arrive to pick-up please note the Pick-up Row you are parking in, then call the establishment you are picking-up from and let them know which pick-up row you are in and the Make and Color of your car. Thank you for you understanding and patience as we get this system up and running.
