Duffield's Farm Market

Everyone loves supporting their local farmer's market. At Duffield's Farm Market, you can swing by any time of year for the freshest fruits and vegetables, plus get your sugar fix with some fresh baked pies and donuts.

This family farm has been a South Jersey mainstay for generations. What started as a small stand in 1930 has expanded multiple times to include 350 acres of farmland. Now, whether it's sweet Jersey corn or refreshing seasonal apples, you'll find it all under one roof.

Hop on a hayride in the fall and you can head out to pick your own pumpkins and apples. When you get back, you can enjoy some tasty apple cider and fresh pumpkin bread.

With so many options, it's a great spot all year round. Come back in the winter to cut down your Christmas tree or stop in for lunch one afternoon. On top of the bakery, they've even got their own in-house deli.
