Hello, Vendors and Friends of the Collingswood Farmers’ Market!
Week 4 of our 2013 is the very different Mayfair Saturday.
The site plan is most unusual since we’re relocated to Irvin Avenue for just this one week each year. For most of you, this is no surprise; we’ve been through it many times before. For newcomers, the dislocation will be a bit traumatic.
VEHICLES ARE PROHIBITED
With very few exceptions (and you know who you are because we discussed the details on SAT MAY 18), vehicles cannot be driven or parked on Irvin Avenue this Saturday. The vast majority of you will park in the lot behind the Kitchen Associates building and unload by foot onto Irvin Avenue. If you haven’t been given a vehicle schedule, or if you don’t arrive on time, DO NOT TRY TO DRIVE ONTO IRVIN AVENUE.
SITE PLAN AND PAVEMENT CHALK
The Irvin Avenue Site Plan is attached.
In addition, David will be chalking the pavement squares with your initials to confirm which spaces you’ve been assigned.
Two guest vendors have elected to join us for this unusual week.
John & Kira’s Chocolates. This will be the second appearance at the Market for this popular Philadelphia chocolatier. John & Kira’s cancelled.
Hand and Paw Massage will be making their very first Market appearance of any season. Consider visiting with your agitated pet for a relaxing session.
Mike DiBartolo will attend with his groaning tables of baked goods. Sara’s Produce will join him near the intersection of Haddon Avenue. They will be the only representatives of our BID contingent this week. As always, Mike DiBartolo, not David Hodges, is your contact for all questions regarding BID participation at the Market. firstname.lastname@example.org (609) 949-3424,
VEGGIE VALET / NONPROFIT FUNDRAISER
There will be no Veggie Valet or dedicated Nonprofits spaces this week. Both will return SAT JUN 01.
FLEXIBLE SITE PLAN
This week especially I will need vendors to be flexible and understanding as you set up your spaces. There is “air” in the site plan, and spaces available to trade if for any reason the space you’ve been assigned seems inappropriate or inaccessible. I will be on the site from 6am until 8am to facilitate the load-in, after which I will depart. Remain calm and sell a lot of stuff.
