NEWARK - Many New Jerseyans don't have access to healthy food options, and many say they can't afford to eat healthy. The state Department of Agriculture is attempting to help with that.
The state Department of Agriculture is helping some cities set up farmer's markets such as the Common Greens Farmers Market in downtown Newark. There were four markets in the Brick City this year, making a variety of fresh and healthy products easily accessible.
The farmers say the season has been successful for them as well, with crowds growing each year. Most of the markets stay open through the end of October and some will be open through Thanksgiving.
