On my previous Wildwood Farmers Market excursions, I sampled guacamole, pesto sauce, and wine (burp), so I figured it was time to get to the heart of what a farmers market is about: fresh and locally grown produce. J & F Ferrucci Nursery was just the ticket.
Located in Newfield, NJ, J & F Ferrucci Nursery had a cornucopia of fresh greens, peaches, zucchini, corn, shallots, onions, and radishes. I was told if I come back the following week, that the list of fruits and vegetables would change, as they only sell the produce that is ripened to perfection and ready-to-eat. You just can’t get food this fresh at the supermarket!
Along with the fresh produce came a variety of potted flowers. I purchased a couple of cone flowers for my back yard (which is mostly cement, but I’ve managed a nice flower garden this year). They bloomed very nicely and since they are perennials I can look forward to seeing them year after year.
Check out J & F Ferrucci on Facebook, or better yet, next Saturday when you are enjoying the morning at the Wildwood Farmer’s Market!
