Virtual Farmers’ Market

Your Source For All Foods Local

The Foodshed Alliance Farmers’ Access Network (FAFAN) has decided to close the Virtual Farmers’ Market Program at our Long Valley Location effective immediately. This is a difficult business decision but we want to be sure that the work and efforts of the FAFAN continues to best benefit our Farmers and Customers. Our role is to support our local farmers and provide a viable outlet for their products. With a recent need to change our location from Long Valley, FAFAN is working diligently to create new opportunities and a new location at the same time minimizing the impact to our farmers’ sales and workload.

We are not permanently closing the program but as a committee we plan to re-examine the program, the system, logistics, etc. and determine a more viable opportunity for the VFM to be effective, so stay tuned!

Our organization has grown, and we look forward to new opportunities, ideas, and programs to further this mission.  As always, our mission is to promote a robust farm economy in the NW New Jersey area. The Board of Directors appreciates your continued support of our farmers and vendors at the Newton Winter Market  and the new Morris County Market.
