NDD Common Greens Farmers Market

START PLANNING NOW TO SUBMIT YOUR 2020 VENDOR APPLICATIONS!

Be sure to come out for the largest and most diverse outdoor market in Newark!

This season marks the 19th year for the NDD Common Greens Farmers Market—the largest and most diverse outdoor market in Newark! The market is held at the old PSE&G Plaza every Thursday from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm until October 31. 

The NDD Common Greens Farmers Market accepts SNAP, WIC, and Senior Citizen Program Vouchers and is within the Nourishing Newark Farmers Markets network. The NDD partners with the Garden State Good Food Network to offer “Double Bucks” and provides double the purchasing power to SNAP customers, enabling participants to purchase double the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables.

The NDD also partners with the Newark CEDC to host a vendor each week by providing a satellite location for their Newark Shoppes initiative. Last year the Newark CEDC held its Shop Newark Launch at the NDD Common Greens Farmers Market, where it provided live music, guest speakers, and on-site applications for community members to join the Shop Newark program.

Annual Downtown Newark Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration

JOIN US ON DECEMBER 3, 2019. SEE BELOW FOR A SUMMARY OF LAST YEAR’S FESTIVITIES.

On December 1, 2018, the NDD and the New Jersey Devils kicked off the holiday season with our 5th Annual Holiday Tree Lighting at the Prudential Center’s Championship Plaza.

This year’s celebration featured the Newark Boy’s Chorus Senior choir and The Four: Battle for Stardom contestant and New Jersey’s own Ali Caldwell! Attendees of all ages enjoyed dancing with popular children’s characters like Black Panther and Mr. Incredible; taking pictures with Santa; and singing along with Victorian carolers, R&B artist Ali Caldwell, the Newark Boy’s Chorus Senior choir, and DJ Sir William.

The plaza was filled with numerous carnival games, a bouncy house, a photo booth, a trackless train, and a street hockey rink along with a selection of food trucks and community partners who brought games, holiday-themed arts and crafts, and complimentary hot beverages to keep our attendees warm.

Still the largest holiday celebration in Newark (over 3,000 attendees), this year’s festivities began at 4:00 pm and at 5:30 pm Anthony McMillan (CEO – NDD), Hugh Weber (President – New Jersey Devils), and the Honorable Mayor Ras J. Baraka lit the 40-foot tree.

Thanks to the collaboration of the City of Newark, Newark Police Department, Newark Public Schools, and the area charter schools, the NDD was able to successfully invite and engage Newark families, resulting in a great turnout and a night of fun-filled holiday cheer!
