Year-Round Farm Market Under Construction in Rutgers Gardens

NORTH BRUNSWICK, NJ—The Rutgers Gardens will soon be opening a new, year-round farmers market under a state-of-the-art, green roof structure.

The 101-year-old, 130-acre property is home to botanical gardens and farms, and has hosted a farm market since 2008, according to Director Bruce Crawford.

"The building of the structure has been in the works for a couple years," said Crawford. "Rutgers Gardens received an anonymous donation of $150,000 three years ago, which they had to match in their own fundraising."
