Collingswood Site Details SAT NOV 08
Hello, Vendors, Artists, and Friends of the Collingswood Farmers’ Market!
SUNNY BUT CHILLY . . . LIKE NOVEMBER
The wet weather will have moved out by Saturday morning when we’re setting up for the Market. Expect chilly temperatures but mostly sunny skies (once the sun comes up).
SAT NOV 08 is the second of four Saturdays in November we will celebrate the Handmade Holidays with our guest artists, crafters, artisans, photographers, jewelers, potters, ceramicists, clothing designers, woodworkers . . . .
The first weekend was a miserable washout, which will make SAT NOV 08 a bright and cheerful debut for this annual event.

ARTISTS ON THE SITE MAP
Look for our Handmade Holidays guests in the site plan marked with red numbers indicating what weeks they will attend. For example, Tammy Riley Ginkgo Girls will occupy space 31 all four weeks of the program (123&4), corresponding to NOV 01, NOV 08, NOV 15, NOV 22. This week, we’ll host 18 art and craft vendors. By the end of the month, we’ll be finding space for 20.
Site Map for SAT NOV 08
Plenty of Guest Vendors this week too. Border Springs Farm Lamb, Weckerly’s Ice Cream, John & Kira’s Chocolates, and Market Day Canele take familiar spaces in the Guest Vendor area. Rich’s Micro Roast will set up below the PATCO line in the Guest Vendor neighborhood, roasting fresh beans to your specifications. At the west end of the Market, MECHA Chocolates, and Wood Spoon Rice Pudding will fill out the Collingswood BID vendor spaces. Green Aisle Grocery will take a spot inside the Market (space 77). So will SOOM Foods Specialty Tahini (space 30). And finally, live alpacas will return SAT NOV 08 and remain with us for the rest of the season.
The always popular Sam Caruso will command the east stage this week.
Now that Mike DiBartolo and DiBartolo Bakery will not be in attendance, David Hodges is your contact for all questions regarding BID participation at the Market. (856) 979-6653 cell for voice or text.
VENDOR PARKING PERMITS
It’s good business to save the best parking spaces for SHOPPERS!
Most visitors will tell you it’s tough to find parking at the Market. We make things worse by parking our own vehicles in spaces that could be used and re-used many times by shoppers. Please encourage your table crew to park for free in the Lumberyard Parking Garage (just across Collings Avenue from the west entrance). There are plenty of spaces inside, and the walk back to the Market takes 3 minutes.
FLEXIBLE SITE PLAN
Changes will continue to occur throughout the season as vendors come and go and as we learn more about how neighbors interact. I remind you no spaces are ever guaranteed and require your cooperation if I have to move your location any given week. Thank you.
