I believe you may have forgotten to mention fireworks from the Hopatcong Yacht Club, also happening on Friday night at 9:15. Rain date is July 3.

HI Brendan. Please correct the movie night time and date. We moved it to Saturday the 30th, because of the fireworks on the lake Friday night and we moved the time to 8:30pm because we cannot start the movie when it is still light out. Thank you and I’m sorry for the confusion.

I highly recommend checking out the Farmers Market if you haven't yet. I have gone the past 2 Sunday's and have had some amazing food. Last weekend I got a dozen ears of corn and it was so good my family ate all of them in one meal. I have had sausage, cucumbers, ravioli, Perogies, and kielbasa. Oh and pickles too. All of it has been fantastic!

Forget the BEEF, "Where's the Pork" - FREE BBQ PULLED PORK SAMPLES every Sunday. No purchase ever necessary at the Hopatcong's Farmers Market or our store location. We would like to thank all who have made it possible to have the farmers market here in Hopatcong. The past three Sundays have been great a turn out/attendance and vendor participation. We have been keeping a close eye on attendance related to the other local surrounding farmers markets and I am very pleased to mention that we have the best turn out.... almost double compared to some others. All the vendors I've visited have excellent products and welcoming staff. Great pierogies, kielbasa, cakes, breads and veggies. Mr. High Mountain Food's products are of outstanding quality. Our family, friends and customers have all stated his food products are superior and priced extremely reasonable considering the quality and freshness. Last but not least, and although it may go unnoticed - a special thanks to those who are passing out complimentary bags to the visitors. Many have said it was very nice and definitely appreciated. We at Sabretti's will continue to support any and all Hopatcong programs, schools and events in addition to offering our products at the most reasonable and justified pricing based on the given event and/or venue.
