Greg Lewis stood behind a table under a white tent on a hot summer afternoon in July. On the table sat brown paper bags labeled, "Hawaiian 100 percent Kona," "Java Taman Dadar" and "Dos Locos." A woman walked up and greeted him by name, telling Greg she stopped by to get her fix while another customer holding a cloth shopping bag purchased 16 ounces of coffee beans she had yet to try…The Rutgers Garden Farm Market in New Brunswick on Fridays started in 2008 with 12 vendors, said programs and development manager Mary Ann Schrum. It now consists of 28 merchants selling traditional farmers market products and baked goods from local growers. "We try very hard to not have the same products. It’s not fair to the vendors and customers," she said. "So many people contact us, and we feel bad about turning them down."
