Local Destination: Duffields Farm Market


If you are looking for some seasonal fun on the farm (no matter what the season), then look no further than Duffield's Farm Market in Sewell, NJ.  Located on the corner of Greentree and Chapel Heights, Duffield's is a beautiful farm with one of the best year-round farmer's markets we have ever been to.  The market itself is open every Monday-Saturday (closed on Sundays) from 9:00am-7:00pm and sells fresh fruits and vegetables all year long as well as locally grown fresh produce seasonal.  Inside the market is also a deli with an amazing variety of meats and salads and a phenomenal bakery located in the back. You can watch the fresh apple cider doughnuts being made right in front of you, and for only 75 cents per doughnut, you're going to have to try one!

Duffields hosts a huge variety of activities and events right outside the market all year long. You can Pick Your Own fruits and vegetables depending on the season.  Hayrides go out in Spring the two weeks before Easter, all during the Apple and Pumpkin Harvest from August to November, and then again in December for the holidays.  Near the Chapel Heights entrance to the property, visitors can view and feed a variety of farm animals (feed can be purchased in the Farm Market for 50 cents).  Duffields also hosts a full Calendar of Events all year long including their amazing PumpkinLand Festival from Sept 20th-Oct 31st.  Check their website to see what is going on in the current month.  You can also follow them on Facebook for more up to the minute event announcements.

Duffields Farm Market is a great place to host a birthday party (in the Spring or Fall) or a destination for an educational school trip.  Their birthday packages usually sell out quickly, so book your reservation well in advance.  School trip packages include hands on activities and are designed to meet NJ core curriculum standards.
