   The Burlington County Commissioners are inviting residents from across the county and beyond to participate in what has become a popular spring rite of passage: Opening Day of the Burlington County Farmers’ Market .
   Last year was the most successful season in the market’s history with a record - high average of nearly 1 , 200 vehicles each Saturday during the regular season and more than 2 , 000 vehicles during the two special holiday markets in November and December .
   This year marks the sixteenth season , which is poised to be the biggest yet . Several new farms and vendors have joined the Farmers’ Market and an entire slate of live music and cooking classes are scheduled .  
   The market is held from 8:30 AM to 1 PM each Saturday in May through October at the Burlington County Agricultural Center on Centerton Road in Moorestown .
   “Live music , delicious food , handcrafted goods , cooking classes and the best Jersey fresh farm produce around can be found each Saturday at our Burlington County Farmers Market , ” said Commissioner Allison Eckel , the Board’s liaison to the Department of Resource Conservation . “Our County market is now one of the most popular in the state , and it continues to grow each year . We’re thrilled by the market’s success and the weekly boost it provides to our local farmers and small business owners , and we’re looking forward to another record - breaking season this year .
   More than 20 farms , two dozen food vendors and 14 artists and crafters will be featured at this year’s Opening Day farmers market , including past participants like the 1895 Organic Farm , Pinelands Produce , Durr’s Blue Box , the Soup Bar and Hoop House Bakery , and newcomers , such as the Black Sheep Farm , Sparrow Lake Farm and Truly Seasoned , a new food vendor .
   Opening Day will also feature the West Jersey Rose Society selling roses and additional farms selling fresh cut flowers , hanging baskets , starter vegetable and herb plants , plus local artists and crafters with handcrafted designs and artwork for sale - - the perfect Mother’s Day gifts .
   There will also be live music by Opus Soul and a cooking demonstration in the Agricultural Center’s farmhouse kitchen .
   “The farmers market is a great place for residents of all ages to come for a fun day outdoors at our beautiful Agricultural Center . It’s not to be missed , ” Eckel said .  
   Craft beer and liquor sales are also back after debuting last season . Marlton - based Zed’s Beer and Columbus - based Recklesstown Farm Distillery will sell on Opening Day , and Burlington City’s Third State Brewery and Cherry Hill’s Forgotten Boardwalk Brewery will also be featured throughout the season .
   The alcohol sales are permitted under a law signed by Gov . Phil Murphy last year that allowed the New Jersey Division of Alcohol Beverage Control to issue special seasonal permits to New Jersey breweries , distilleries or wineries to sell their products at farm markets .
   Alcohol sales will be for off - site consumption , though overage adults will be permitted to try a limited number of samples .
   “Zed’s Beer is a beloved local business in Evesham , and we think it’s wonderful that they and other small businesses are able to gain additional sales and exposure during the County’s Farmers Market , ” said Evesham Deputy Mayor Heather Cooper . “It’s support like this that makes Burlington County such a great place to live and operate a business . ”
   The center also features community gardens and demonstration gardens , field plots maintained by the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Service and a commercial kitchen .
   “Burlington County’s support for farming and agriculture is well - known . We are the home to New Jersey’s first preserved farm , and we have more acres of farmland preserved than any county in New Jersey , ” said Eckel . “The Agricultural Center is another example of our Board’s commitment to ensuring agriculture remains an active and vibrant industry . Doing so not only helps our county’s farmers; it also maintains the high quality of life all our residents enjoy . ” 
   More than 20 farms , two dozen food vendors and 14 artists and crafters will be selling at the Opening Day of the Burlington County Farmers Market this Saturday , May 7 , from 8:30 AM to 1 PM at the Burlington County Agricultural Center . Last year was the most successful season in the market’s history with a record - high average of nearly 1 , 200 vehicles each Saturday during the regular season and more than 2 , 000 vehicles during the two special holiday markets in November and December .
