The Marketplace Catering & Event Venue

Email | Visit website | 732-962-0012

The Marketplace is a husband and wife owned catering company and event space, specializing in non traditional wedding celebrations. We do this by specially curating each and every event with menus, and service packages tailored to the individual needs of the couple! We are known for authentic and fun food and event planning that expresses the individuality of every engaged couple.

The Marketplace Venue is dressed in rustic elegance décor and includes the full use of our gorgeous farmhouse patio. Two blocks from the beach it is perfect for a wedding down the shore!

Not looking for a beach wedding? We frequently cater off premises at event spaces all over New York and New Jersey where we are preferred caterers!

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

We are personally passionate about inclusivity and love to serve clients looking to celebrate their union in an inclusive, fun and creative environment! When you inquire with us, you won't get the same traditional seated dinner packages offered to every customer at every venue or catering company. We know that every couple has different needs, styles and budgets.

Among some of the recent styles of weddings we've catered: Backyard bbq with a fancy twist. Stations featuring authentic West African and Indian fare. Jersey boardwalk theme with bite sized fun foods like mini corn dogs, lobster rolls & mini chicken and waffles. 5-course Nordic menu served family style. There are so many possibilities.

We will take the time to discuss your vision for your celebration, and get to know you so that we can curate an event completely tailored to you!

The time and attention we give to our clients is truly unlike any other catering company or venue around!

"What a joy to work with someone so excited to customize, instead of trying to sell us a pre-determined package that didn’t reflect us. The food was great, the service excellent, the price reasonable, and the experience such a pleasure!"- Julie & Yael (2018)

"Working with Jon was refreshing and an absolute pleasure. I don’t think it's common to find people in the wedding/event business who have the perfect balance of kindness, empathy, thoughtfulness on one side, and professionalism, organization, honesty on the other."-Cheiku & Nicole (2018)
