BEOF Moving Forward, with Rebranding & Fundraiser

2016-08-10_14-35-22The Bayonne Economic Opportunity Foundation will host “Exalt to Excellence, the White Party,” its inaugural fundraiser.

The BEOF event will be held at the BCB Pavilion, 301 Chosin Few Way, on Saturday, Sept. 17. The event will feature live entertainment from old-school Philly Soul group The Stylistics Review and will feature The Urban Guerilla Orchestra.

Since it is a “white party,” guests are asked to wear white clothing, but not formal wear.

“Dance the night away and enjoy the tastes of an assortment of fabulous dishes as we honor local community members for the impact they’ve made in the lives of Bayonne residents,” said BEOF Executive Director Samantha Howard.

The BEOF provides a wide range of services to improve the quality of life for and to assist low-income, handicapped and elderly residents of Bayonne and Hudson County so that these beneficiaries can become self-sufficient.

At the event, the BEOF will honor great work and public service.

“At the BEOF, we believe that excellence is a journey, not a destination,” Howard said. “Exalt to Excellence will be an annual event to honor those in the community who travel that road, by consistently demonstrating the qualities and commitment to go above and beyond in order to help others.”

Guess what’s back in Bayonne


Bayonne Farmers’ Market has returned for its fifth season. Now open on Tuesdays from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm.  It will run through October 25, 2016, rain or shine.  The market will take place at a new location this year, Fitzpatrick Park, which is located on Avenue C, between 26th and 27th Streets.  Fitzpatrick Park stands across the street from the south side of City Hall.

Mayor Davis said, “The Bayonne Farmers’ Market has become a popular feature of our community.  We welcome the 2016 Farmers’ Market to the City Hall neighborhood, which will provide a great central location for Bayonne shoppers.

Participants this year will include both new and returning Famers’ Market businesses. The Opening Day lineup of participants includes:  Lizzmonade, Baker’s Bounty (coming in June), The Empanada Lady, Paolo’s Kitchen, Just Delicious Kettle Corn, Dr. Pickle, Gourment Fruits and Nuts, Mike’s Bagel Chips, The Farmer and the Chick Pea (formerly City Girls), High Mountain Foods, Outer Limits Hot Sauce (joining in July), Pimento Grill (Caribbean Foods), JC Fish Stand, and Sparties Mobile Spa.

Last season, the Bayonne Farmers’ Market offered a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program with Ort Farms.  CSA allows city residents to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown locally by regional farmers. When you become a member of a CSA, you’re purchasing a “share” of vegetables. Weekly, from May until October, your farmer will deliver that share of produce to the Market for pick-up. CSA members pay for an entire season of produce upfront. This early bulk payment enables your farmer to plan for the season, purchase new seed, make equipment repairs, and more. Bayonne’s CSA was very successful last year and will be returning again this year.  The famers’ market CSA program is unique in that it is customizable, so customers only get the produce that they want each week.  Registration is ongoing.  The first date for CSA pick-up is May 31. The CSA program offers three options: full, half and personal shares.  CSA is a twenty-one week operation, from May 31 through October 25, with an assumption that. each customer has one week of vacation from the program.  Eggs or cheese can be added to your share.  Flexible payment plans are available.

More information and CSA applications can be found on the Bayonne Farmers’ Market Facebook page or at  The link to the Farmers’ Market Facebook page is
