that would be great. any recs would be appreciated. maybe i can name drop.
I'll try to ascertain who some of the participating farmers are, as I know there is some overlap with the NYC greenmarkets. Thanks to Rosie for spreading the good news.

Alstede has ripe tomatoes, basil, peaches, lettuce. Lebanon Kitchen Garden (new this year) had a wide selection of aragula, several lettuces, basil, and promised a selection of heirloom tomatoes later in the season. Totally organic (NOFA-NJ).
Greenwood Farms from Port Colden (the port comes from its location along the Morris Canal) had a wonderful smoked mozzarella ($7#), fresh mozz, sweet spring onions, basil, fingerling potatoes, etc. I understand they have a selection of smoked meats at the Sunday market in Morristown.
There will likely be more vendors as the season progresses. I didn't see Ted Blew this year, maybe he'll be in later in the season.

It's much smaller than the previous years. The big draw is the amish Table- cakes,cookies breads , & some things in jars. The crowd around them is amazing!!
You forgot Teaneck. Their's is on Thursdays from 2-7pm at Cedar Lane and Chestnut.

Tomatoes $3.75 qt (dents and bruises $2), late aragula and basil. Potatoes and squash in abundance. Macouns were $3. The drought has created a very intense concentrated taste this year. Greenwood had more fresh mozz and some smoked mozz. Taking orders for organic turkeys, too.
New vendor, Oldwick Shepherd, was selling sheep milk cheeses ($8.50 for 8 oz). Described as cheeses served at Artisanal in NYC.
Currently have six regular vendors. Market is looking for a bread vendor for next year, also a butter and egg person...

From Madison center, travel east on Main Street toward Chatham about 3/4 mile, then turn left onto Rosedale. There's an FU Bank (First Union to those who aren't customers) on the corner.
For those who want the address--Madison: 9/5 to 10/31 Community Pool, Rosedale Ave.(Thursday)
Rail Paul--Where is Rosedale Ave near? Can you give us some directions from Rt 124?
Rosedale runs north from Main Street, the market is located at the community pool. That's about a mile in from Main St. There's a soccer field just past the driveway.
The artisanal cheese was excellent, but $17 a pound is a steep price. I understand it is also sold at Gary's wines (which you'll pass)
