Farmers Market

The DowntownFreehold.com Farmer’s Market is a fantastic community event for all to benefit from; with the goal of establishing a consistent and reliable source for people in our community to have access to healthy locally grown food. We bring Jersey Fresh vendors right to the center of town every Friday 11am – 4pm in front of the Hall of Records! Buy sun-ripened, freshly picked fruits and vegetables directly from the farmers who grow them. Along with a large selection of locally grown seasonal crops, Farmer’s Market visitors will be able to purchase freshly baked goods, flowers, honey and more July – October!

Here is a brief look at our participating Farmers this year:

Snapping Turtle Farm 

Snapping Turtle Farm is a 78 acre vegetable and herb farm located in Cranbury, NJ.  About half of these acres remain a mixture of wild woods, wetlands, and brooks while the other half is tillable farmland. We grow over 50 types of vegetables and herbs and specialize in heirloom tomato and unusual pepper varieties each chosen for its unique flavor.

Our farmland is in the midst of the three-year process of becoming certified organic.  All of our practices and farmland follows the rules of the National Organic Program during our three year transition to becoming certified organic.

Snapping Turtle Farm is farmed by Allison Akbay, who grew up in nearby Belle Mead, NJ. Allison is the daughter of retired Rutgers agronomist Dr. Harry Motto who she now consults on maintaining soil fertility. Allison was an avid gardener for many years and became involved in the local organic food movement in the San Francisco Bay Area before switching careers and returning to New Jersey to start Snapping Turtle Farm.
