Earlier this week, I received this emailed press release about the NJ blueberry crop from the New Jersey Department of Agriculture: “POPULAR JERSEY FRESH BLUEBERRIES NOW AVAILABLE”.

“Jersey Fresh blueberries, the official state fruit, are now in season and available at local supermarkets, farmers markets, roadside stands, and pick-your-own farms, Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher announced today.”

This should be an interesting year for berries because strawberries are late this year and many farmers are still struggling with the strawberry crop this year because of the rain and wetness.

“Getting the strawberries out of the field this year is like mud wrestling” said a Farmers Market/Farmstand employee I talked to this week.

“They are going fast [the strawberries]” she added and they sell out early every day at every market.

I can attest to that having missed out on fresh strawberries every Sunday for the past three weeks at the Red Bank Farmers market.
