The wheels are still churning on our end but we will be releasing information about vending at the market within the next few weeks. Below is information that will help you be prepared when our application is formally released.

What can you expect at our market? The Journal Square Green Market is located at the intersection of Bergen Avenue and Kennedy Boulevard, about 500 feet from the Journal Square Transportation Center and PATH station. This intersection is the crossroads for the thousands of people who live, travel, commute, and work in the Journal Square area.
