Spring is right around the corner! Lucy for us, we have so much to look forward to here in Jersey City. We’ve been waiting for the farmers markets to come back to all the great parks we have within our city.
By shopping at Jersey City farmers markets, some of the not too far from Madox, residents reduce their carbon footprint by eating locally grown goods. Healthy shopping is easy with farmers markets open almost every day of the week in spring. The first of the farmers markets to open is in Van Vorst Park is open on Saturdays from 8am- 3:30pm in April.
If you can’t wait until April to enjoy the fresh air and fresh food, you can head over to the Hudson Farmers Market on Kennedy Boulevard. They have been providing excellent service for over 25 years. They are also a garden center, so you can add fresh flowers to your Madox apartment to welcome spring as well.
A local Jersey City resident, Ali, has a website inspiralized.com which can provide you recipes on how to make delicious and healthy meals using the vegetables from the market and her spiralizer machine. Her site gives you recipes such as zucchini spaghetti with fresh pesto and tomato, butternut squash noodles with chicken, chicken and chickpea broccoli noodle pasta and much more! You can even do a gluten free, paleo or vegan meal plan for $4.99 a week.
