One of the things I love best about living in NJ is the abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables. They don’t call it the Garden State for nothing! From tomatoes to corn to fresh berries, it seems you can find delicious, locally-grown produce everywhere you look. And what’s better than buying directly from the farmers who’ve grown it? We've already told you about Farmers' Markets in Hudson County and now Farmers’ markets are popping up all over Union County, offering wonderful food and gourmet items at many convenient locations. Whether it’s fresh nectarines, yummy whoopie pies or mouth-watering mozzarella, you’re sure to find something scrumptious!
Another spring into summer; another graduation! Whether the children in your life are 5 or 17, graduation is always an exciting time for the whole family.

For your tween and teen grads, that feeling of accomplishment is contagious and inspirational—so why not reward the hard-working graduates in your life with a little “You Did It!” present? Here are some gift options for graduates of all ages.
We love Princeton. It's on my swoon-list, and if it weren't a good hour+ drive from my own parents we'd probably have moved in already. Since we are currently (and yes, happily) stuck in Somerset county, Princeton definitely lands in our Mommy Poppins Day Trips in NJ Guide and I'm surprised others haven't realized how much this town has to offer besides the wonderful university. Get ready for some Princeton fun!
