🍯Your Guide to Finding Local Honey🍯

Healthy and helps fight off seasonal allergies

The idea behind honey treating allergies is similar to that of a person getting allergy shots... When a person eats local honey, they are thought to be ingesting local pollen. Over time, a person may become less sensitive to this pollen. As a result, they may experience fewer seasonal allergy symptoms. But other sources say there is no scientific proof. As someone who definitely has seasonal allergies, I am one to try anything!


Here are some local places you can purchase local honey (still open for business but give each a call on how to get your honey and bee pollen):

  • Cornerstone Montclair (while supplies last) - Montclair
  • GreenGrocer Food Hub - Bloomfield
  • The Love of Grub has both Honey and Bee Pollen - Clifton
  • Montclair’s Farmer’s Market - Montclair
  • Morgan’s Farm - Cedar Grove
  • Richfield Farms - Clifton
  • Stew Leonard's Wines - Clifton
  • Zach and Zoe - Montclair

Did you ever know about consuming bee pollen for allergy prevention? The Love of Grub filled us in on how they capture it: "It’s captured by little bristles set at the entrance of the hive.  The bristles knock the pollen off their legs.  It’s then jarred up for consumption."
