Collingswood Farmers Market Wins the Tony Russo Farmers Marketing Award

The New Jersey Agricultural Society awarded Betsey Cook and David Hodges of the Collingswood Farmers Market the Tony Russo Farmers Marketing Award, for excellence in promoting New Jersey’s agricultural products on January 18, during the New Jersey State Agricultural Convention in Atlantic City.  The market first opened in 2000 as a project of the civic group Proud Neighbors of Collingswood to bring local farm products to the area.  It is now a project of the Borough of Collingswood and boasts more than 20 farmer/grower-related participants each season, as well as many other vendors.
