First Friday at Blue Moon Acres Market

The Certified Organic farm in Pennington, NJ, serves the neighborhood their own produce and eggs inside the store along with a wide variety of sustainably produced foods and goods from surrounding counties. Customers drive past the beautiful fields, a chicken run, and several high tunnels as they approach the market, engaging them in a fun and family-friendly shopping trip. “First Fridays at the Farm Market” will take place the first Friday evening of each month from 4pm until 7pm and will give shoppers an opportunity to enjoy a tasting and interact with a vendor. Have fun while stocking up for the weekend! More information and updates are posted on Blue Moon Acres Facebook and Twitter pages.

The Farm Market is open Wednesday through Friday from 9am to 6pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 9am to 5pm.

About Blue Moon Acres and the Market

Jim and Kathy Lyons have provided organic food to restaurants for twenty years from their central farm in Buckingham and their newer farm in Pennington. They wanted to offer it to their neighbors as well. The reason for opening the farm market “is to bring the community to the farm and to give them a farm experience… to see what plants look like growing in a field, to cut their own herbs and flowers, to see the chicks whose eggs they enjoy roaming the pasture,” stated Kathy. The Lyons’ want to provide a direct relationship between consumers and the producers of their food. The Lyons also personally connect with each and every vendor they source from to provide organic and high quality selections beyond their own produce and eggs.

The Blue Moon Acres Farm Market, located on Blue Moon’s Pennington farm at 11 Willow Creek Drive, features a “DIY” cut flower and cut herb garden, where visitors choose and cut their own greens. There is an experiential children’s garden in the works, with plans to include a vegetable plot, music garden, fairy garden, and craft garden.
