A sure sign of summer in this suburb is the Montclair Farmers’ Market, created in 1993 and kicking off its twenty-third season on Saturday, June 6, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Walnut Train Station parking lot. The market runs all summer and through the fall until Thanksgiving All five of our familiar farmers -- Tree-Licious Orchards, Sunden Farms, Vacchiano’s, Matarazzo’s, and Farmer John (the organic grower) – return this season with their fresh produce, often picked within 24 hours.

The market also boasts 15 delicious food artisans, including a local baker, a cheese maker, a seafood fishmonger, a beekeeper with honey (and wax candles), a specialty condiments purveyor, a pesto maker, a Garden State wine vintner, and a pickler.

This will be the second season for the weekday Farmers’ Market on South Park Street between Bloomfield Avenue and Church Street, opening on Tuesday, June 9 and then every Tuesday afternoon from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. We plan to have two farmers, plus several other specialty food vendors.

Wheels for Wishes

Wheels For Wishes is a vehicle donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish® New Jersey, a non-profit organization that grants the wishes of children facing life-threatening medical conditions.

When you donate your unwanted vehicle, proceeds from the sale through the Wheels For Wishes 501(c)(3) charity benefits your local Make-A-Wish®.

These "wish kids" need to think about something better, and imagine a future with bright days and dreams that come true. Although doctors provide the medical care, they tell us that a wish is powerful medicine, and it is the wishes that provide hope, laughter and fun times for children to be who they are... children. If you have a car to donate, your generosity will make a big difference.

Wheels for Wishes offers an easy way to recycle or donate your unwanted cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, or even boats. Other benefits enable you to:
receive a charitable tax deduction;
eliminate the hassle of selling your car;
be “green” by recycling your car;
get fast, free pick-up or towing of your donated vehicle.

In most cases, your vehicle is accepted whether it is running or not.

Please call (877) 712-9474, or, go to: http://newjersey.wheelsforwishes.org/.
