Asbury Fresh Public Market

Asbury Fresh Public Market

New public market brings fresh foods, produce, and locally made goods to city residents year round.

With great pride, Asbury Fresh is happy to announce our newest endeavour - The Asbury Fresh Public Market. Located at the corner of Main Street and Second Ave, this 4000 square foot converted warehouse will be home to about a dozen permanent food and craft vendors, an event space, and a brewery. Our vision is to bring the feeling and flavors of places such as Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia and Chelsea Market in New York City to Asbury Park.

We are currently seeking a variety of artisan food and craft entrepreneurs to join us as permanent residents of the market, which is set to open later this spring. If you are interested in becoming a vendor, contact us at and we would be happy to schedule a walk through of the space and share our vision with you in greater detail.

Asbury Fresh, downtown Asbury Park’s local artisan market, will also return to Kennedy Park for it’s third installment this June - stay tuned for more information at or email to join the email list.
