Vacations & Food....Perfect Together!
Let’s paraphrase that popular slogan, New Jersey & You…Perfect Together, to one we can all relate to - Vacations & Food….Perfect Together!
Bet that got your attention!
Perhaps you know that New Jersey is the Garden State, and we’re mighty proud of that designation. Along the way, especially here in Cape May County, we’ve added beer, wines, oysters, fish, honey and more under the Jersey Fresh banner.
What better way to learn about the fresh veggies, eggs and other farm products then by visiting one . Bring the junior farmers in the family to Jalma Farms in Ocean View and learn how the super fruits - Beach Plums & Black Aronia berries are grown and made into delicious foods. Visit Beach Plum Farm in West Cape May where more than a hundred varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers are grown, hand-picked and delivered just a few miles away from the restaurants of Cape May where chefs develop daily menus with the freshest ingredients.
By June, Jersey Cape farm fields will burst with sweet strawberries and before long enjoy baskets of blueberries, bushels of those delicious Jersey tomatoes, tasty corn and luscious peaches....and that's why from spring to fall, locally grown produce is the honored guest at festivals and special events around the area. Even lima beans get their day in the sun with the annual Lima Bean Festival every October in West Cape May.
During the summer, farmers markets are held in West Cape May, Ocean City, Stone Harbor, the Cape May Lewes Ferry, the Lower Township Municipal Complex on Bayshore Road and many other locations.
Dozens of independent farm markets dot Southern New Jersey's roads – to find one near you, visit the New Jersey Sate Agriculture website for tips on selecting the best produce, recipes and more!
Heard the buzz about the Cape May Honey Farm? Stop by the honey farm on Sunset Blvd. and marvel at how much you don't know bees and how many things can be made from honey - from allergy remedies to toppings for ice cream.
Beer made with honey? Sure. Cape May Brewery is the first - and only - brewery to carry the “Made with Jersey Fresh” label for its Honey Porter beer, a smooth and light-bodied porter with a hint of sweetness, thanks to that Jersey Fresh honey.
Curious how your seafood gets from the ocean to your plate? Satisfy that curiosity at Fisherman’s Wharf at the Lobster House in Cape May, the second largest commercial fishing port on the East Coast. Stroll around the docks, get a close-up look at the boats and learn more about the fishing industry that will give you a new appreciation for the men who head out to sea year-round. For tour times and information contact the Mid Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities.
Fish Alley in Sea Isle City is another great spot to watch the crews off load their catch of the day – then make a bee line to one of the nearby restaurants to enjoy the freshest fish possible.
Scallops, flounder, striper, weakfish - some 40 different species of fish are routinely caught here on commercial fishing vessels, charter boats. And, if you don't catch your own dinner, local fish markets offer a variety of seafood, fresh off the boats and ready for a sizzling grill.
Cape May County’s oyster industry dates to the 1800s when oyster harvesting from the Delaware Bay and coastal waters topped two million bushels annually. Once again Cape May Salts are a favorite with oyster connoisseurs who relish their distinctive salty and sweet flavor, the result of production in the Delaware Bay.
How about pairing those Cape May Salts with a brewski from Cape May Brewery or a glass of wine from one of our six county wineries….but that’s a story for another day so stayed tune to learn more about our vineyards, wineries, breweries and even a distillery.
