The Clinging-to-Summer Corn Salad

Stef Perna (treatbelly). Summer Corn Salad. Sure, the temps were in the 60s this morning and the sun is coming up later every day. Still, it sometimes feels like summer, especially when you can enjoy the last of our Jersey sweet corn, onions, and peppers. You can get everything you need for Stef’s Clinging-to-Summer Corn Salad at the Market this Saturday (and maybe for a few Saturdays to follow).

VENDOR PARKING PERMITS

It’s good business to save the best parking spaces for SHOPPERS! Most visitors will tell you it’s tough to find parking at the Market. We make things worse by parking our own vehicles in spaces that could be used and re-used many times by shoppers. Please encourage your table crew to park for free in the Lumberyard Parking Garage (just across Collings Avenue from the west entrance). There are plenty of spaces inside, and the walk back to the Market takes 3 minutes.

Load In

ARRIVE NO LATER THAN 2PM. THE ONLY ENTRANCE IS FROM HIGH STREET.
15 MINUTE TIME LIMIT FOR UNLOADING IN THE MARKET.

As you can see, the space is tight for the number of vendors, and getting in and out of our spaces will require planning and patience. Unless you have permission to park a vehicle inside the Market, you’ll have to drive carefully to your spot, unload VERY QUICKLY, then EXIT THE MARKET with your vehicle and set up when you return.


Click here for driving directions.

You can use (and tell your new customers to use) 2 High Street Mount Holly NJ
as a destination for mapping programs.


Contracts and Fees

Those of you who have not submitted your Application/Contract paperwork need to comply to remain active at the Market and to take advantage of the Fee Rebate Program.

Download the Application from the Mount Holly Contracts link at the top of this website. Complete the app in Word, in PDF, or on paper, and send it to Sean Kennedy, whose name and address are on the first page of the contract package.

FEE REBATE PROGRAM

Prepay your dates to qualify for Fee Rebates. Earn a full 100% rebate for table fees for every Market you attend. Prepay for 10 dates (for example), attend those 10 dates, and you’ll be refunded 100% of your fees at the end of the season.

DAY PAY VENDORS

Afraid of commitment? You can pay on Market day. The Market Director will have receipts for day-pay vendors who prefer the flexibility of paying when they attend, but no rebates can be earned without prepaid dates.


Facebook Promotion

We were very visible on Facebook last week. Not so much this week. If anybody wants to help keep us in front of the local shopping public, let David know you want to lend a hand. Click the link to see what we’ve been up to.

Small Bills 

Many of you know, but for those of you who don’t, I carry small bills for vendors who run out of singles during the Market day. New this month: I now come with two rolls of quarters.

Flexible Site Plan

Changes will continue to occur throughout the season as vendors come and go and as we learn more about how neighbors interact. I remind you no spaces are ever guaranteed and require your cooperation if I have to move your location any given week.

Collingswood SAT AUG 24

Too soon to predict the weather.
Dave’s on vacation.

Farmers’ Market Director David Hodges will be off on his annual one-week vacation (this year to Wales and the Lake District of England), so he’ll miss the Market on SAT AUG 24, but he expects the Market will experience a typical New Jersey summer Saturday morning: temps in the low to mid 80s, and humid with a chance of showers.

Mostly Cloudy Cows


Siteplan for SAT AUG 24

The site plan is back to its usual shape after last week’s unusual layout to accommodate the annual Crafts and Fine Arts Festival.

Nature’s Own Farm and Woods Edge Farm will resume their customary spaces alongside the Buck Wild Bison and Headquarters Farm Lamb tables in Carnivores Corner at the east end of the Market.

Duker T is still off on vacation, but otherwise all our regular vendors will take their usual spaces.

Check your Location. Know your space numbers.
Look for the Green spray paint.

Dave won’t be in Collingswood to chalk the pavement, so you’ll have to find your spaces from the permanent green spray paint marks..

Mozzarella

FRESH MOZZARELLA FROM VILLA BARONE

Revolution Roasters handles the fresh-roasted beverages, while El Sitio provides fantastic Ecuadoran specialties including empanadas and Pan de Yuca (cassava cheese bread treats). Villa Barone features familiar favorite sauces, tasty zeppolis, sometimes their own fresh mozzarella. Giovanni (John) Barone will stand in for his father Guido this week. Sara’s Produce by special arrangement is the one source for produce NOT grown in New Jersey so our customers won’t have to go to the grocery store for limes. Lost Bread Co. of Philadelphia has taken up the familiar bakery space.

Small Bills and a Bathroom Key

Bring your own small bills for SAT AUG 24, please. Dave’s on vacation this one Saturday. 

Many of you know, but for those of you who don’t, I carry small bills for vendors who run out of Singles during the Market day. Fives and Tens too. New this season: I usually start the day with two rolls of quarters.

VENDOR PARKING PERMITS

It’s good business to save the best parking spaces for SHOPPERS! Most visitors will tell you it’s tough to find parking at the Market. We make things worse by parking our own vehicles in spaces that could be used and re-used many times by shoppers. Please encourage your table crew to park for free in the Lumberyard Parking Garage (just across Collings Avenue from the west entrance). There are plenty of spaces inside, and the walk back to the Market takes 3 minutes.


Flexible Site Plan

Changes will continue to occur throughout the season as vendors come and go and as we learn more about how neighbors interact. I remind you no spaces are ever guaranteed and require your cooperation if I have to move your location any given week.

Susan Mauer Lynch (Yellow Room Upstairs). Out of this world Chicken Meatballs! How many of our vendors can you patronize to produce a simple dish a five-year-old can make and enjoy? Susan set herself the challenge, starting with ground chicken from Hillacres Pride and basil from Flaim Farms, zucchini from A T Buzby and Jersey sweet corn from Muth Organic Farm, finished off with parmesan cheese from Villa Barone.
