Cowtown Farmers Market is a huge indoor and outdoor market located in Pilesgrove. This southern NJ staple is known for its iconic red barn exterior and rodeo located just next door.

The Cowtown Market got its start as a livestock auction back in 1926. Since then, it has expanded to include a flea and farmers' market. Although livestock auctions ceased in 2007, you'll still be able to find just about anything here amongst its 400 indoor and outdoor vendors selling everything from apparel and accessories to antiques, toys, fresh fruits and veggies, Amish baked goods, electronics, seasonal items, and so much more.

While you're here, be sure to pay a visit to the Ranch Hope Thrift Shop located on the premises that help to support at-risk youth. Another exciting feature of Cowtown is the rodeo, known as one of the oldest in the United States. Every Saturday there are a host of different events that take place here and the last rodeo will be held at the end of September.
