Voorhees Twilight Market THU MAY 29

MAY 29Hello, Voorhees Marketeers!

General Notes
Thursday’s weather will be dry but cool. Expect partial sun and 68 degrees at 3pm while we’re setting up but a generally cloudy day overall.
Vendor Notes
  • TWO NEW FARMS are joining us this week.
  • Lone Wolfe Farm of Pemberton will bring annuals, perennials, hanging baskets and other landscape enhancers, plus the first of their spring produce.
  • Cherry Grove Farm of Lawrenceville will debut at the Market this week with farmstead cheeses (should pair beautifully with the breads at Wild Flour Bakery and Duffield’s).
  • Duffield Farm will be back this week with more strawberries than they had last week.
  • A.T. Buzby farm will return as well, with Jersey Fresh hydroponic tomatoes, and more fresh produce from the fields.
  • Davidson’s Mushrooms will be traveling from Kennett Square to bring us shitakes, criminis, and other exotic mushrooms.
  • Alex Gassner’s Taproots Farm is back this week.
  • Far Wind Farm, will provide extraordinary pastured eggs from the very contented laying hens at their Williamstown farm.
  • Wild Flour Bakery, whose artisan breads, baguettes, flatbreads and other baked goods have been pleasing Marketgoers all around the region for year, returns to Voorhees for their third week.
  • Fruits d’Heritage will bring just one product: heirloom tomato seedlings in charming, biodegradable paper pots that can be directly planted.
  • Kemp’s Kettle Corn will attend.
Twilight Market Vendor Mix
  • As a Farmers’ Market, we’re as committed as ever to bringing Jersey Fresh produce and agricultural products to our customers directly from the hand of the grower or producer.
  • At the same time, our evening hours suggest we should also blend in carefully selected food artisans, chefs, and prepared food goods using local products. Please don’t hesitate to recommend pasta-makers, sausage-makers, sauce producers, coffee roasters, ice cream churners, butter producers, or any other food preparers you think might enhance our mix.
Space and Product Accommodations
  • Just a reminder that spaces are never guaranteed. We do our best to accommodate requests for ideal locations, but Market needs trump any individual vendor’s personal preference.
  • We also do our best to limit redundancy of products at the Market, with the clear understanding that most farms that grow produce will harvest similar crops at similar times. Still, we welcome your feedback on matters of duplication and excessive competition.
Directions for New Vendors
  • The site plan at the top of this post shows the layout of the Market at the “Macy’s entrance” to the Voorhees Town Center (formerly known as the Echelon Mall).
  • In this detail below, notice you’ll most likely enter the Mall site by way of Town Center Boulevard (1), curve left between the Macy’s entrance (2) and the Special Activities Plaza (3), then take a left into the Market site (4).
Close Map 01
  • Stepping back a bit from the near view, see the Town Center Boulevard entrance (at the blue arrow) off of Echelon Road.
Far Map 02
  • And finally, the Google Map view shows how to approach Echelon Road from Route 295, Exit 32, via Route 561, and then Somerdale Road. (Google calls your destination “A.”)
  • To see more of the Google directions, use “Voorhees Town Center, Voorhees NJ” as your destination, as I have done in the map field below.
