Hello, Vendors and Friends of the Collingswood Farmers’ Market!
How the season flies! Just a few weeks ago, we were seeing the first Jersey blueberries in the Market. Already this week will likely be the last for the organic berries from Brookeberry Farms. They have blueberries and blackberries, but will not have a crop of raspberries this year. Meanwhile, Springdale Farms’ blackberry crop, when it comes, looks like a big one.
Weatherwise, low temps and light breeze. Cloudy, with lowering humidity. High of 80 by closing. Precipitation 0%.
A full slate of popular favorites: Green Aisle Grocery, John & Kira’s Chocolates, Sweet Freedom (Collingswood’s gluten-free bakery). And the berries.
Trio Nova Duo will beguilingly strum and pluck on the east stage, while, to the west, Dave Kelly will hold court.
As always, Mike DiBartolo, not David Hodges, is your contact for all questions regarding BID participation at the Market. (609) 949-3424. firstname.lastname@example.org.
