Gloucester Township summer-long farmer’s market off to fun start

Residents can shop for three hours every Thursday at Harwan Park

Today, July 20th, 2023, Mayor Mayer and artists David Knauer and Rob Ortiz cut the ribbon on the historical mural in the Downtown Blackwood section of Gloucester Township. Joining them at the ceremony were Assemblyman Paul Moriarty, Council President Orlando Mercado, Councilwoman Tara Walters, Economic Development Partnership Chair Dennis Paris, and Neighborhood Preservation Stakeholders’ Committee Member Nick Rehrig.

Gloucester Township began its weekly summer-long farmer’s market earlier this month and will continue it all summer long every Thursday through Aug. 31. 

Residents are invited from 4 to 7 p.m. at Harwan Park, where they can purchase crafts, food and artwork from local artists, hear live music and play games.

The township introduced the Thursday farmer’s markets last year, and despite summer thunderstorms, each was met with heavy turnout for live music, food, games and crafts. As a result, the market was able to expand the number of weekly vendors; there are 30 this year.

In related news, the historical mural in downtown Blackwood was unveiled in an official ribbon-cutting ceremony with the artist, David Knauer, and township officials.  

Knauer works with oil, aerosol, pen and tattoo ink, and to complete the mural, he reviewed historical photographs provided by the Gloucester Township Historical Committee.

Knauer’s friend, Rob Ortiz, helped with the project. He is a software developer who works in art and graphic design in his free time. The owner of 21-23-25 N. Black Horse Pike donated a wall for the mural, the brainchild of the Neighborhood Preservation team in Gloucester Township.

More photos of the farmer’ market and mural unveiling are available on the township  Facebook Page.
