The purpose of the Rutgers Gardens Farmers Market is to provide a well-managed and organized marketplace for both the local farmer/producer and patron. Our aim is to encourage the development of local agricultural and specialty products, as well as promote local economic development and community building through educational and family-friendly activities.

Cooks Market Opening in June Cook’s Market will expand the market’s safety and function for the community, while also creating a landmark and gateway for Rutgers Gardens. The sustainable structure will convey the horticultural, ecological, and educational mission of the Gardens.
