Our Story

Our story began in 2011 with $500 and two Sparta residents Ben Del Coro & Mitch Morrison and a handful of small local farmers dedicated to producing and providing our community with the best, freshest and highest quality foods produced in Sussex County.

Sparta Farmers Market, became an instant success and lives on with the same popularity today. In each and every market day, we pay homage to the passion of our agricultural roots, and strive to do better for our farmers, bakers, artisans and community each and every day.


In 2017, Ben took a step back from the week to week management to focus on career and family. Now, heading into our 9th season Ben Del Coro is resuming ownership and management of the Sparta Farmers Market with his two sons Anthony & Brendan. We look forward to building on nearly a decade of success.
