As we have done in the past, we will be attempting to coordinate transportation options so that anyone who wants to come will have a way to get there!
For those coming from NYC, we're going to meet at a central Jersey City collection point (see address below) at 10:30AM near the Grove St PATH station in Jersey City. From there we will be driving to the Gluten Free Market together. Anyone who has wheels and plans to drive to the event, and is interested in inviting a few friends into their cars, please let me know so I can coordinate carpooling. We may also rent a small van or bus to bring people if there aren't enough carpoolers available. Transportation home will be to the Jersey City collection Point (or possibly to the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal with ferries going to Manhattan).
For those driving directly there, we'll see you at the Gluten Free Market at 12:00PM!! Please let me know if you need directions.
