Special Program
Independent historian, researcher and author, Brian Armstrong returns to our Farmers’ Market this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. for a fascinating look at Prohibition on the centennial anniversary of the “noble experiment” that constitutionally banned the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcoholic beverages.

Armstrong will cover the back story on how Prohibition came to be passed, the problems with enforcement, and how it ultimately was repealed. He also tell some interesting tales about New Jersey and Hunterdon County during the Prohibition era.

The program is free and will be held in the Dvoor Farm wagon house.

Armstrong holds a BA in History and a BA in Political Science from American University. He’s the vice-president, Central Region, for the League of Historical Societies of New Jersey and past president of the South River Historical & Preservation Society.

Go with the flow and try Farmers’ Market Yoga with Lauren Theis at 9 a.m. in our wagon house. Our yoga is the perfect way to get your week off to a great start! Cost is $15; please bring your own mat.
