“The food you want from the farmer you know”
Brick Farm Market in Hopewell Borough is a destination unto itself. Their mantra, “The food you want from the farmer you know”, includes a vast selection of meats, produce, cheeses, and baked goods, most of which is grown or raised on owners Robin and Jon McConaughy’s nearby Double Brook Farm.
“We have gotten a great response. People are coming here as a destination for food,” said Robin McConaughy in a recent interview. “Customers come from as nearby as Princeton and as far as Pennsylvania to buy ingredients from the market or to dine in at the café.”
And lucky for us, now through the end of May, Brick Farm Market is hosting a seedling sale of it’s Double Brook Farm produce including: Tomatoes – heirloom, slicer, paste, cherry, Peppers – sweet (king of the north, corno di toro), hot (jalapeño, Hungarian hot wax), Summer Squash – dark green zucchini, yellow crookneck, Eggplant – black beauty, snowy, and last but not least, Basil.
