The market was chosen this year to commemorate National and State Farmers Market Week, which encourages residents to support their local farmers markets and local agriculture.

New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher, Patricia Dombroski (USDA Food and Nutrition Service Mid-Atlantic Regional Administrator), Cathleen Bennett (Acting State Health Commissioner) and Assemblywoman Mila Jasey were on hand to present a proclamation to Village President Sheena Collum.
