2019 Opening Day
Join us as we celebrate the first day of the 2019 market season in our new home Cook’s Market. The market begins at 11. Be sure to be here by 12 for the festivities which include a spotlight on the 3 varieties of sweet basil that Rutgers released in 2018. Rutgers researchers Jim Simon, and Andy Wyenandt will be on hand to answer questions about their research.
The first 300 shoppers will receive one of the new release plants to take home for their own garden; Rutgers Obsession DMR, Rutgers Devotion DMR, Rutgers Thunderstruck DMR.
Rachel Weston will also be here cooking her recipe of the day. Also check out which of the vendors are using basil in their recipes this week.
Of course there will be children’s activities and games provided by the Rutgers Gardens youth programs staff and volunteers.
