Hello, Vendors, Artists, and Friends of the Collingswood Farmers’ Market! Welcome to another wonderful season of the Market! Our 16th, and better than ever.

Site Plan for SAT MAY 02

MAY 02 Space

Dog Behavior Policy

Starting Opening Day, we will roll out a Dog Behavior and Permitting program designed to encourage good pet and owner behavior and eliminate troublesome animals. Every dog in the Market will be required to register and agree to comply with the Behavior Guidelines. Registered dogs will use the hot yellow 4-foot Market Permit Leash, making them easily identifiable. Dogs that misbehave will surrender their leashes. OUR PART David Hodges and the Collingswood Special Police will enforce the Guidelines, lightly at first, but increasingly strenuously throughout the month of May. By the first Saturday in June, we hope all dogs in the Market will be registered. YOUR PART If good dog behavior is important to you, you’ll comply beginning in June with the No Permit, No Purchase policy, declining to serve customers who don’t choose to cooperate with the Permitting and Behavior Guidelines.

BID Vendors

Perennial favorites, DiBartolo Bakery, Villa Barone Restaurant, Cheese Etc., Sweet Freedom Bakery, and Sara’s Produce will all attend. Mike DiBartolo of DiBartolo Bakery is your contact for all questions regarding BID participation at the Market. (609) 949-3424 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.
