Voorhees Twilight Market THU JUN 12

David Hodges

JUN 12Hello, Voorhees Marketeers!

General Notes
  • Expect to get wet today. Forecasters predict scattered thunderstorms for much of the time we’ll be open, temperatures approaching 80 degrees, light wind at 9-11mph.
  • Also expect to get groovy. We’ve booked a Caribbean Steel Drum Band to keep our spirits lively.
Vendor Notes
  • TWO NEW FARMS are joining us this week!
  • Joining us for the first time, Border Springs Farm will bring lamb in several forms: ground, in chops, in other cuts, as sausage . . . .
  • Also new this week, Cheyenne’s Farm Market bring beautiful produce, seedlings, and Very Local Honey from their own hives.
  • Cherry Grove Farm of Lawrenceville will return to the Market with farmstead cheeses and assorted beef and pork cuts.
  • A.T. Buzby farm will return as well, with Jersey Fresh produce from the fields.
  • Alex Gassner’s Taproots Farm will be back with herb and vegetable seedlings.
  • Far Wind Farm will provide extraordinary pastured eggs from the very contented laying hens at their Williamstown farm.
  • Wild Flour Bakery is back with artisan breads, baguettes, flatbreads and other baked goods.
  • A 2013 favorite, Hank Sauce will return to Voorhees this week with their cayenne-based hot sauces.
  • Davidson’s Mushrooms is iffy today, so they don’t appear on the site plan yet. If they do come, they’ll bring shitakes, criminis, and other exotic mushrooms.
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.
