Township officials are busy putting the final touches on the first weekly Farmers Market event that will come to Brick this weekend.

The weekly farmers market will run each Saturday through mid-September (except July 4) at Windward Beach Park, 265 Princeton Avenue, and kick off this Saturday, April 25. The market will open at 9 a.m. and end at 12 noon each week. Numerous vendors have already signed up, and officials were signing up more this week, said Brick Township Council President Paul Mummolo.

“A few more vendors will be signed up before Saturday,” he said at a council meeting Tuesday.

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.

    It was really great to see the huge, early turnout for the premier opening of the Brick Farmers Market at Windward Beach on Saturday. The steady stream of cash-ready bargain hunters was large enough to nearly buy out everything several vendors had in the first hour of operation. Many vendors apologized, ssying they would be back next Saturday, with much more stock on hand. The only disappointment for me was the noticeable lack of fresh produce stands. Popularity is sure to grow for this events, but the heavy traffic on Princeton Avenue won’t make anyone happy. Time for city hall to scout for a larger, more accessible and accomodating venue. (Did I just hear smeone say “What abut the old Foodtown lot?”
