One of my favorite things about Summer in NJ is having more local options for farm fresh organic fruits and veggies. In addition to having the Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, Pennington is now home to Blue Moon Acres which has recently opened a retail store selling Local Meats, Pasture-Raised Eggs, Organic Vegetables (lots of greens), Berries, WowCow & Bent Spoon Ice cream and gelato, fresh flowers, local chocolate and more goodies. I just stopped in on Sunday and picked up some Organic Beets ($3/bunch of 3) and Cucumbers ($1.67/lb). I opted out of purchasing the $6/dozen eggs but they looked to be a good size. The Timber-Framed market is relatively small, air-conditioned and staffers are very friendly. With my fresh organic beets I made a really delicious Orange Beet Salad.
On August 4th, Blue Moon Acres will be hosting a Grand Opening Celebration with Kids Crafts, local food vendors like Nomad Pizza, and more activities. Worth a visit for sure just to check out the chickens! (12-4pm)
