NDD Downtown Market

NDD Downtown Market


Returning in 2021!

The NDD Downtown Market (a newly-imagined version of the NDD Common Greens Farmers Market) will take place from mid-July through September, 2021. Check back for more details on the Urban Agriculture Cooperative’s produce stand, live music, and seating amenities that will feature food from local downtown businesses.

In 2021, the NDD Downtown Market will take place at PSE&G Plaza on Thursdays. In addition to live music, a farm stand hosted by the Urban Agriculture Cooperative, curated arts and crafts vendors, physical fitness activations, and information tables highlighting local businesses and community-based organizations, the market will feature a seating area dedicated to food delivery services bringing food from downtown restaurants. Vendor selection, featured restaurants, and programming will all be centered on downtown businesses.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for every Thursday from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm starting on July 15, 2021. The NDD Downtown Market will be back and ready to welcome you at the former PSE&G Plaza, 80 Park Place, Newark, NJ. We’ll see you there!
