Produce in the Park is a farmers market and community gathering held every Thursday evening from 4:30-6:30 PM in the Atlantic City Park from June through October 13.
Produce in the Park is expecting another busy market today, June 16. Over 20 vendors, food trucks, and increased activities from visiting organizations have been drawing more visitors to the
park. The increase in participation and attendance has been great for vendors, but the sidewalks at the park have become more crowded.
Produce in the Park is working with vendors to reduce sidewalk crowding, and there will be a new layout at the park June 16. All vendors and visiting organizations will still be found in the Atlantic City Park, but the market footprint will expand to use more of the sidewalks and shady spaces available in the park.
Additionally, today’s June 16 market will host the Atlantic Elks’ Bike Rodeo for kids age 12 and under, which will be set up on 6th Street. To keep the bike rodeo safe for everyone involved, there will be no senior parking available on 6th Street on June 16. Senior parking on 6th Street will be available again on June 23. Produce in the Park thanks customers for the feedback and support as the farmers market continues to grow.
