Collingswood SAT OCT 08

SAT OCT 08

WEATHER. We’ve dodged a lot of rainstorms this season. Apparently we’ll have to do so again this week. An increasing likelihood of rain is predicted for the Market hours, all the way to 70% by the closing cowbell. Temperatures in the 60s. Light breeze.

Site Plan for SAT OCT 08

The departure for the season of A T Buzby, Les Viereck, and Sweet Freedom Bakery has opened seven spaces in the middle of the Market, so we’ve located our Guest Vendors along the Midway.

Bag Reduction

Already this season, we have noticed a significant decline in the number of disposable, single-use plastic bags at the Market. We’re taking a variety of steps to help shoppers eliminate them where possible.

Send anyone who wants to participate to the FOFM (Friends of the Farmers’ Market) tent at the middle of the Market for

  • a FREE Paper bag courtesy of Market sponsor Audubon Savings Bank, or
  • a chance to make their own T-Shirt bag, or
  • to purchase a snazzy Market reusable bag, or
  • to BORROW a reusable bag from the FOFM Loaner Bag program.

BID Vendors

Perennial favorites DiBartolo Bakery, Villa Barone, Cheese Etc., and Sara’s Produce will be selling food.

Starting this season, David Hodges is your primary contact for all BID area questions, reservations, and requests. At the usual numbers and email addresses. See below.

Small Bills and a Bathroom Key

There will be no small bills this one week, SAT SEP 03.

For guest vendors who might not be aware, Joe Williams will be available with keys to Perkins Art Center, a Market sponsor, the primary benefit of which, for our vendors is INDOOR PLUMBING!

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.
