PRINCETON – The local farmer's market continues with dozens of vendors in Mercer County.

Every Wednesday and Saturday local farmers are set up at the Technical Education Center in Princeton.

They're selling a variety of produce including tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes, onions, cabbage, and so much more.

A number of vendors are accepting senior citizens market vouchers. The local growers tell Newswatch it's a labor of love, and they hardly ever make any money back on their investment.

“Yeah, it a good feeling” says Colin Walters standing under his tent, “I try to help somebody get fresh produce, homegrown stuff right out of the garden and at a fair price.”

The Farmers Market in Princeton runs from May through October every Wednesday and Saturday starting at 7:30 a.m.
