The fruit market in New Jersey’s Finger Lakes city of Quincy has become a haven for people looking to buy organic and local produce.
The market is open Monday through Thursday and is open to all ages, from 12 to 65 years old.
It’s open for people who want to avoid the hassle of buying in bulk, but also want to get fresh fruits, vegetables and fruits and vegetables on the go.
For many, this is their first visit to the fruit market.
There’s no checkout at the door, so the only way to buy is to make a reservation at the counter and pick a fruit to buy, said Kristin Kalkaska, a sales associate with the market.
For $5 you can pick up fresh fruits and veggies at the market, but you can also order them online.
“We do take reservations for the market to ensure there is enough room for people to purchase fresh produce,” she said.
There are several grocery stores in the city and the fruit and vegetable market is one of them.
Kalkasa said it was easy to find a fruit or vegetable in the area and the market was one of the first grocery stores that they found.
“It’s really nice to be able to go and have fresh produce in your neighborhood and there’s so many fresh produce coming in,” she added.
A lot of the fruit comes from small growers in the Finger Lakes area.
They are the ones that are making a living off the fruit, Kalkaseas said.
Some of the local farms have been growing fruit for a long time, and have become so successful that they can even grow their own fruits and turn them into fruit-based products like salad dressing.
One of the biggest producers is the Green Mountain Fruit Growers Cooperative in Elizabethtown, where Kalkaskas is the farm manager.
The farmers have about 1,000 acres of land.
“They have a really good product that is really delicious, it’s a really healthy product that you can get a lot of nutrition from,” Kalkale said.
“There are a lot more people that are getting involved in this community that are starting their own farm and they’re taking a lot less money to grow,” Kankaska said.
The city of Quincy also has a grocery store that sells fresh produce, but it is a very small one and only sells produce at the Quincy Farmers Market.
The Quincy Farmers market has been operating since the early 2000s and has been a big part of the community, said Elizabethtown Mayor James Skelton.
“The Quincy Farmers Markets are the only grocery stores of their kind in New Hampshire,” he said.
