Continuing its role as trusted source for all things food and garden,
Sickles Market, Little Silver, N.J., began its latest venture this month:
“Sickles Market On the Road Tours.”
Featuring chartered coaches for travel to and from specially selected
locations, the “On the Road Tours” will introduce guests to unique
and exciting food and garden destinations with Sickles Market’s own
experts as guides.
The inaugural “On the Road” adventure
was held at the start of November with two
visits to one of the world’s most celebrated
gardens, Longwood Gardens, Kennett
Square, Pa., just outside Philadelphia. The
second will be conducted Dec. 7 for the
popular Christmas Festival. Each daylong
excursion is $125 per person.
“Our professionals love sharing their
knowledge and we have an
eager customer base hungry to
experience intimate glimpses
into the fascinating worlds
of food, culture and gardens
and more,” said Bob Sickles,
third-generation owner of
Sickles Market, a 103-year-
old, national award-winning business located on the fam-
ily’s property dating back to a King’s Land Grant in 1663.
“We are starting close to home because incredibly unique
sites are located just hours away, but we are planning trips
as far away as Italy and beyond.” Sickles added there will
be exciting, fun drawings for Sickles Market products and
services while en route and delicious treats prepared by
Sickles chefs and bakers. Gifts range from custom wreaths
and custom potting at your home, to gardeners’ goodie
baskets and gourmet food gifts.
