Collingswood Site Details SAT NOV 15
Hello, Vendors, Artists, and Friends of the Collingswood Farmers’ Market!
SUNNY BUT CHILLY . . . LIKE NOVEMBER
The sun is rising earlier (according to Congress), but the light wind chill and the fact that it’s November will conspire to keep things pretty chilly this SAT NOV 15.
SAT NOV 15 is the third 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 second weekend was a wonderful debut (following a very rainy first). This week promises to be another beautiful installment of our very popular annual event.
Check out Brooke Van Derzee’s charming rendering of our “logo”:
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. (There is no Market SAT NOV 29.)

Plenty of Guest Vendors this week too. Border Springs Farm Lamb (their final appearance for the year), 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). Live alpacas will occupy the west end of the Market.
It’s just too cold for finger-picking this time of year. There is no music scheduled for 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.
