Hello, Collingswood Marketeers!
WE MISS YOU ALREADY
Saturday is the final Market day for several vendors. It’s been a wonderful spring/summer/fall, and we appreciate you all. Farewell this week to Treehouse Cafe, Hurley’s Landscaping, Sikking Flowers, Dolinski and Sons, and Les Viereck. Thank you, and see you next spring!
CHILLY BUT SUNNY
Setup temperatures will be in the 40s, and the high for the day will be in the upper 50s, but sunny and lovely. Wear an extra layer and enjoy the crispness. Grab an apple.
VOLUNTEERS AND MUSIC
She Hates Me will rock the east Music Tent and the FOFM Volunteer Tent will be fully staffed again this week! Redeem your Market certificates, get your facilities key, drop off your lost items here, and express your thanks for another season of generosity from our wonderful volunteers.
PUMPKIN CARVING CONTEST
We’re trying something new this season, inviting kids and adults to carve pumpkins on the premises for fun and prizes. We’ll set up at the east end, in the guest vendor area near the FOFM Volunteer tent.
FEATURED ARTIST MEG KARETNY PAPER CRAFTS
Megan is a paper artist. She’ll be selling paper crafts, special occasion cards, twine wreaths & jewelry. See her in Space 14.
If you haven’t already paid, David will visit your tables to collect your fees for November. Your small one-time fee is good for FOUR Saturdays this year: NOV 02, NOV 09, NOV 16, and NOV 23. The calendar makes it so.
Starting next week, SAT NOV 02, we’ll experience a “gentle takeover” as more than two dozen artists and crafters descend on the Market to fill the spaces vacated by departing vendors. Some are Market veterans; others are rookies, and as such they’ll be unfamiliar with Market procedures and protocols.
There may be some unavoidable messiness at startup, but we’re doing all we can to assure that the new arrivals know what to do, and where, and when. Please remain patient; the crafters are a draw for shoppers and help us stretch our food-selling season well beyond the date other Markets close.
