Down Route 517/Fairmount Road, just past the Long Valley Brew Pub, every Thursday from 3-7pm, there is a wonderful farmer’s market waiting to be discovered by you. Perhaps you’ve seen the tops of the tents and wondered what was there or maybe you already know. In case you don’t, I’m here to tell you that there is a wonderful world of community filled with fresh produce and fantastic products calling your name! All you have to do is stop in and visit The Long Valley Green Market.
Fontanarosa’s Gourmet Specialty Food’s truck with his large variety of breads, traditional and gluten-free pasta and sauce’s.
I love that food at farmer’s markets are “whole foods” – what I mean is that it’s grown and brought to the market without being processed first: beets and carrots still have their tops attached and the onions still have a little dirt on them. The best part about ultra-fresh food is that it’s so easy to prepare: don’t peel the carrots, just lightly steam them; roast the beets with just a little olive oil, salt and pepper. The freshness of the locally grown produce is so fantastic that there is little work required.
