PARAMUS, N.J. – Reading, writing &hellip; and raspberries? A transformation occurs every Wednesday in the Scoskie Hall parking lot at Bergen Community College, turning the asphalt car corral into the “Farm 2 Fork” market, a bustling bazaar of farmers, bakers and gourmet food purveyors offering a locally produced bounty of fruit, bread, sauce and cheese. At a recent visit, Jodi Nicola, of Hackensack, and Melinda Randolph, of Garfield, (pictured l. to r.) shopped the artisanal delights from Meredith’s Bread, an Ulster County, N.Y., bakery. The Farm 2 Fork market takes place in the Scoskie Hall parking lot every Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Bergen Community College’s main campus in Paramus, 400 Paramus Road.
