Fake $100 Bills

Last week Tatiana (of Wild & Co) recognized a fake $100 bill a customer was trying to pass at the Market. She didn’t accept it, of course, and the counterfeiter immediately left the Market without trying to get anyone else to take his bills. Be wary. Farmers’ Markets are often targeted by counterfeiters. Here’s a video to help you recognize a good 100.

Collingswood SAT MAY 28

Once-a-Year Mayfair Market Location!

THOUSANDS OF NEW SHOPPERS.

MAYFAIR Saturday is the strangest Market day of the season, but it can be very profitable, AND it can introduce your farm, food business, service to thousands of brand new customers.

HADDON AVENUE CLOSED TO TRAFFIC.

MAYFAIR draws as many as 50,000 visitors to Collingswood every year for a “Shut-Down-Haddon-Avenue Kick-Off-the-Summer” festival on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. We “give back” our 130 parking spaces to the Borough for this event and move our operations to the smaller but Festival-adjacent Irvin Avenue block you’ll find on the aerial map below.

PREPARE FOR A REMOTE LOAD-IN

Please find your business on the MAYFAIR SITE PLAN and be ready to cart your stuff from the Kitchen Associates parking lot to your location. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DRIVE DOWN IRVIN AVENUE to unload.

GOT QUESTIONS?

For ANSWERS to your questions about how to get to the Market, how to approach by car, where to pull in and park, and how to set up your table and tent, see the graphics below and watch the 7-1/2 minute video that explains it all.

SHARE WITH CREW

PLEASE SHARE this blog page with your table crew ESPECIALLY if they are new to the Market.

PUT MY NUMBER IN YOUR PHONE

PLEASE ALSO be sure your staff have my cell number for Saturday morning TEXTS: (856) 979-6653

Once-a-Year Limited Vehicle Access!

PLAN AHEAD

Spend a few minutes with this map before you arrive in Collingswood on Saturday morning.

HADDON AVENUE CLOSED

Haddon Avenue MAY or MAY NOT be closed to through traffic when you arrive, but even so, YOU CAN’T USE IT to get to the Market via Irvin Avenue. ENTER the MARKET from SOUTH ATLANTIC AVE as shown below.

Parking. Site Access. Site Plan Orientation Video.

Here I take a walking tour from the primary entrance to the site and demonstrate the load-in location and the technique for marking spots in chalk on the pavement.

GOOGLE MAP CAN HELP

The Vendor Entrance is opposite 720 Atlantic Avenue, Collingswood NJ 08108. Google maps will get you right to the spot at the intersection of Atlantic and Irvin. Enter there. Proceed to the Kitchen & Associates parking lot for load-in.
