The Brick Farmers Market is a new effort this year, funded through a grant by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The grant covers costs to host the farmers market as well as local advertising and promotion. Township officials said this week that they hope the farmers market will continue in future years, but that depends on how well it is attended this year.
