Hello, Vendors and Friends of the Collingswood Farmers’ Market!
Week 4 of our 2016 Season is the very different Mayfair Saturday.
As we do just once every year, we’re relocating to Irvin Avenue this week to accommodate Mayfair. For experienced vendors, this is no surprise; for newcomers, the dislocation will be startling.
VEHICLES ARE PROHIBITED
Vehicles cannot be driven into or parked on Irvin Avenue, which is narrower than our usual spaces. Instead, you’ll be parking in the lot behind the Kitchen Associates building and unloading by foot onto Irvin Avenue.
DO NOT DRIVE ONTO IRVIN AVENUE
A few vendors have made appointments with David to arrive at particular times for very brief vehicle access. Unless you have a scheduled time to use your vehicle, park in the Kitchen Associates lot and walk your setup.
Site Plan and Pavement Chalk
- The Irvin Avenue Site Plan is attached.
- In addition, David will be chalking the pavement squares with your initials to confirm which spaces you’ve been assigned.
We had limited room for Guest Vendors this week, but are happy to note the several participants in the site plan above. We also made space for Philosopher’s Stone Massage & Wellness. Operator Rhiannon Flores-Drennen is offering free chair massages to promote her wellness center. Accepting tips only. Clients will also be able to book full sessions and purchase gift cards.. Stop by for a relaxing chair massage when the stress of the day gets to be too much. 🙂
Mike DiBartolo will attend with his groaning tables of baked goods. Villa Barone will set up a table too. Sara’s Produce will join them both near the intersection of Haddon Avenue. They will be the only representatives of our BID contingent this week.
VEGGIE VALET / NONPROFIT FUNDRAISER
There will be no Veggie Valet or dedicated Nonprofits spaces (and no Dog Tent) this week. All will return SAT JUN 04.
FLEXIBLE SITE PLAN
This week especially I will need vendors to be flexible and understanding as you set up your spaces. I will be on the site from 6am until 8am to facilitate the load-in, after which I will depart to visit the West Windsor Farmers’ Market near Princeton. (It’s the only Saturday I am free to see this Market, and I’ve never been there.) Remain calm and sell a lot of stuff.
