WEST CAPE MAY – The West Cape May Farmer’s market is now an adolescent in terms of its chronological age – but its grown nicely from what it was. 

“We first started out front in the parking lot, where it was 300 degrees on the pavement and people had difficulty parking,” Mayor Pam Kaithern said.
The borough then got a one-time grant from the county for creating handicapped accessible recreation projects. The borough gave part of the money to the West Cape May Elementary School to improve its playground equipment. Kaithern said the borough put the “lion’s share” into creating what is called the “Backyard Park” behind Borough Hall.
