Slightly unsettling, imaginative works that make you question reality can be seen at this exhibit. Artist Reception: May 16th from 1-3pm.

We are happy to announce the opening of the Burlington County Farmers Market on May 23. While we know that our customers have enjoyed spending time at the Market to socialize with friends and vendors, listen to the live music, or sit in on a cooking demonstration, we have had to make changes due to the COVID-19 crisis. At this time, our focus must be on the core mission of the Market - to give local farmers the opportunity to market their produce directly to the consumer and give the public access to fresh, locally grown produce and value-added products. For the foreseeable future, there will be no musical entertainment or cooking demonstrations. Only agricultural vendors and prepared food vendors will be able to participate at the market. For guidelines and specifics, visit: http://www.burlcoagcenter.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/BURLINGTON-COUNTY-FARMERS-MARKET-.pdf
