The Site Plan

  • Vendors on the north (sunny) side of the plan will no longer park vehicles inside the Market.
  • LOAD IN ON THE SUNNY SIDE will take place “on the other side of the parking meters” along North Atlantic Avenue.
  • SUNNY SIDE vendors look for your name in chalk. Center your tent/table on the chalk as far “back” as possible.

New Parking for Vendors

The fenced parking lot alongside the NO LONGER USED Police Station building is available for your vans and trucks. Shoppers have no idea it’s available, so we should take advantage of it.

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.

Site Plan

Most returning vendors will find themselves in the same location, but we have enough space to be flexible, so if what you see on the site plan does not suit your needs, please speak up.

If you don’t find yourself on the site plan, please let me know immediately. If you do find your location, take note of where it is relative to the only entrance so you’ll know approximately where to go when you arrive.


Load In

ARRIVE BY 2PM to give yourself time to set up.
We need to close the Market to Vehicle Traffic
before the entrance opens at 3pm.

Look for David to guide you to your location. You may park your vehicle directly adjacent to your tent location and leave it in the Market for the evening. Don’t set up until he has confirmed your spot. We have plenty of space in the parking lot for our own vendor vehicles, so EVERYONE can drive in and leave trucks, vans, trailers in your own retail space! No customers will drive into the Market.


Click here for driving directions.

Google Map link to 23 Washington Street.

This is the police station at 23 Washington Street. The Market operates in the Municipal Parking Lot BEHIND the police station. Look for directional signs at the intersection.

Highlights for THU AUG 26

Highlight images such as this one for appear on facebook (and sometimes on our website) in the week leading up to every Market. Want to be featured? Provide David with images of yourself or your product (your table setup or your crops in the field, or anything in between). Or suffer with whatever choices he makes.


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.

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.

Site Plan

Most returning vendors will find themselves in the same location, but we have enough space to be flexible, so if what you see on the site plan does not suit your needs, please speak up.

If you don’t find yourself on the site plan, please let me know immediately. If you do find your location, take note of where it is relative to the only entrance so you’ll know approximately where to go when you arrive.


Load In

ARRIVE BY 2PM to give yourself time to set up.
We need to close the Market to Vehicle Traffic
before the entrance opens at 3pm.

Look for David to guide you to your location. You may park your vehicle directly adjacent to your tent location and leave it in the Market for the evening. Don’t set up until he has confirmed your spot. We have plenty of space in the parking lot for our own vendor vehicles, so EVERYONE can drive in and leave trucks, vans, trailers in your own retail space! No customers will drive into the Market.

Highlights for THU AUG 12

Highlight images such as this one for appear on facebook (and sometimes on our website) in the week leading up to every Market. Want to be featured? Provide David with images of yourself or your product (your table setup or your crops in the field, or anything in between). Or suffer with whatever choices he makes.


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

Among others, these images appeared on facebook in the week leading up to Opening Day.

Website

The Township  produced a sharp-looking website for our shoppers who think facebook is evil.

Lauren Schiavo and her team have joined our Marketing effort. She’s a powerhouse and very easy to work with. I recommend you take advantage of her passion for the Farmers’ Market by providing her with any news you have about your farms, your products, your story.

Lauren@thomasboyd.com

Among other contributions to our marketing effort, Lauren produces “Featured Vendors” images and text for the website. A recent sample:
