6th Borough Market is a fun, family oriented weekend market in Jersey City. Located right by the Exchange Place path station, this event is a crowd pleaser! We went to the farmer’s market this weekend and enjoyed all the vendors and food trucks present. The 6th Borough Market is the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month. You’ll find food trucks, handmade vintage jewelry, antique cameras and photos, handmade lotions and soaps, delicious gluten free and non GMO treats and music! The Chopping Block truck was there this weekend offering specials such as jerk chicken and rice, lasagna hotdog (sounds weird but looked delicious!), chicken quesadillas and specialty drinks. If you’re vegetarian this may not be the truck for you, but 6th Borough Market has food for everyone. But-A-Cake was also there and was delicious as well! They also take online orders, Facebook message them for more information! Did we mention this market is just a ten minute walk from our apartment building?
Groove on Grove is probably our favorite farmer’s market in Jersey City. Mostly because of the live music and awesome vendors. If you work in the city you may want to get off at Grove Street every Wednesday. JC Fish Stand has beautiful, fresh fish right from Fulton Fish Market. The scallops are out of this world! $30/per lb and can feed about 3-4 people. You’ll also find booths with fresh flowers, cheeses and vintage clothing such as Mint Market and Kanibal & Co.
