Collingswood Site Details SAT NOV 22
Hello, Vendors, Artists, and Friends of the Collingswood Farmers’ Market!
SUNNY BUT COLD. . . LIKE NOVEMBER The sun is rising earlier (according to Congress), but the legislature can’t control the thermometer. Winds are very light but gain through the morning. As the temps rise, the breezes pick up. Dress accordingly.
HANDMADE HOLIDAYS SAT NOV 22 is the fourth and final Saturday in our annual Handmade Holidays celebration of guest artists, crafters, artisans, photographers, jewelers, potters, ceramicists, clothing designers, woodworkers . . . . This week promises to be another beautiful installment of our very popular annual event. Check out Nicole Meyers’ 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.)

GUEST VENDORS Plenty of Guest Vendors this week too. Weckerly’s Ice Cream, SOOM Foods Tahini, and John & Kira’s Chocolates take familiar spaces in the Guest Vendor area. Rich’s Micro Roast will roast beans to your specifications on the space usually occupied by the Music Tent, to make room for the final visit of Neil’s Sharpening Service below the PATCO line in the Guest Vendor neighborhood. 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 and Market Day Canele will take spots inside the Market. Live alpacas will occupy the west end of the Market.
LIVE MUSIC It’s just too cold for finger-picking this time of year. There is no music scheduled for this week.
BID VENDORS 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.
