Blueberry season is in full bloom in South Jersey.
The Greater Hammonton Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with AMI and AtlantiCare, hosted its 36th annual Red, White & Blueberry festival Sunday. People and families from across the Delaware Valley thronged into the area just outside Hammonton High School for an assemblage of patriotism, music and a wide array of blueberry confections made from local produce.
Chamber of Commerce Executive Director John Runfolo said about 10,000 people came through the festival over the course of the day. He estimated that vendors at the festival went through 900 crates, each of which contained 12 pints with 200 blueberries per pint — good for more than 2 million total blueberries sold.
