Rutgers University and Rutgers Gardens helps support local farmers, as well as the local community and economy, by utilizing an area at the entrance to the Gardens, adjacent to Ryders Lane, as a market. The market gives commuters and students easy access to fresh, locally grown crops and commodities. It also provides “one-stop-shopping” for local restaurants seeking a variety of products from a diverse group of farms and vendors. The market promotes sustainable farming as well as focuses on recycling and conservation.
