Jefferson Township Farmers Market @ Firemen's Field
Jul 21 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Jefferson Township Farmers Market @ Firemen's Field | Jefferson | New Jersey | United States

The Jefferson Township Farmers Market has a new home: Firemen’s Field. The field is located at 750 Route 15 South, behind Bank of America at the intersection with Bowling Green Parkway. The new space will allow more room for vendors and better accommodate traffic flow. Customers will have ample parking onsite and at the Lakeside Recreation Complex directly across the road (15 Swan Lane).

The market returns on June 2 for its third year of providing customers with fresh produce and local goods. It will be open every Sunday from 10:00-2:00 through October, rain or shine, offering an array of seasonal fruits and vegetables, jams, jellies, eggs, all natural and organic soap, lotions, and more.

Many favorite vendors will be back: The Feisty Pepper, Sparta Mountain Farm, Corbett’s Cookie Bar Kitchen, Jersey Pickles, Olsen’s Honey and Spice, and Escentually Natural. Look for new vendors as well: Jersey Girl Cheese (fresh mozzarella and other Italian-style artisanal cheeses) and Mojo Homemade Dog Treats.

Tom Galfo, known locally as Farmer Tom, is the market organizer and owner of The Feisty Pepper. He told The Jefferson Chronicle that “the farmers market has everything but the box of pasta. Stop by and get fresh produce and homemade goods before going to the grocery store.”

In addition to vendors, Farmer Tom welcomes special interest groups to set up tables and interact with the community. Corporate sponsors are invited as well. Live music provided by Jeiris Cook will once again enhance the opening day market experience, and may become a weekly occurrence.

Galfo, a member of the Morris County Agriculture Development Board, is committed to helping to protect green spaces. He encourages the community to buy from local farmers and invest in locally sourced goods; the success of the farmers market and contributing businesses depends on such support. Farmer Tom encourages consumers to have a connection with the source of their food and how it gets to them. “The more people who get their hands in the dirt and grow their own food, the better off we will be,” he says. “It is valuable to have that understanding.”

Vendors, special interest groups, and corporate sponsors wishing to participate may contact Tom Galfo at TheFeistypepper@gmail.com or 973-919-5657.

Golf Outing to Support Veteran Suicide Prevention @ Berkshire Valley Golf Course
Jul 25 @ 7:00 am
Golf Outing to Support Veteran Suicide Prevention @ Berkshire Valley Golf Course | Jefferson | New Jersey | United States

If you want to play golf and support veterans, two Jefferson Township High School students have an idea for you.

Michael Sullivan and CJ White, students in Jefferson Township High School history teacher Jon Boyle’s Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights class, chose to support veteran suicide awareness. For the final project, students were asked to become an activist for a cause they care about.

Sullivan and White teamed up with Mission 22 and Berkshire Valley Golf Course to run a charity golf tournament to raise money for veteran suicide awareness and prevention in the United States.

The event takes place on July 25 at Berkshire Valley Golf Course. For $120 per player, golfers receive a continental breakfast, grille lunch, range balls, and cart fees. There will be prizes for the longest drive, drive closest to the pin, and a 50/50 raffle. Registration begins at 7 a.m., with a shotgun start at 8 a.m.

Sponsorships for the event are also available with the following fees: cart sponsor, $25 each; hole sponsor, $50 each; continental breakfast, $1,500; grille lunch, $2,500.
