Downright Cold.

Little cloudy, temps in the 20s to start, in the 30s to finish, light breezes. But Dry.

Guest Vendors and Special Products

Herb Soap


Start a shopping list!

We’ve got a very full lineup of Guest Vendors and Special Products this week.

  • Barn and Stone House Soap
    — Not just soap but plenty of other cleansing and grooming products, all made by our vendor!
  • Inspired Brews Kombucha
    —Sip a sample, buy a bottle, or bring a growler for a refill. In the BID section of the Market.
  • MECHA Artisan Chocolates
    — Find them in our “chocolate space,” which Duker T has since departed, with pumpkin and other favorite holiday flavors.
  • Chloe’s Crème Puffs
    — Chloe wrote to say the weather (30s, maybe 40 by noon) would pre-empt filling crème puffs this Saturday. I told her to bring them filled. No answer yet. Keep your frozen fingers crossed.
  • Indogrow Microgreens
    —The boys from Cherry Hill are back with their tiny little crop of hyperlocal, super-flavorful sprouts!
  • John & Kira’s Chocolates
    —If you haven’t tried the ganache-stuffed figs you haven’t fully experienced ganache, or figs!
  • Preservation Provisions
    —Not sure there’s a difference in pickles? Test that theory by sampling from several varieties.
  • Woods Edge Wool Farm
    —They raise alpaca for their wool and yak for their meat. They keep bees for honey and pollination. They make candles and soap. They knit that fabulous wool into awesome garments and the world’s best socks and gloves. Spend some time with them.
  • Knowhere Farm
    —The kids are back! Get your selfies with the adorable young goats and pick a few bars of the Knowhere Farm-made goats milk soap. Down by Perkins.

Gruyere Beans


Stef Perna (treatbelly). Gruyere Green Bean Casserole. Stef says, “Forgo that outdated can of condensed ‘cream of mushroom’ soup and make way for gruyere and sour cream this Thanksgiving holiday. Flaim Farms green beans and yellow onions, as well as Dulce Artisanal Pastry sourdough loaves are available from the Collingswood Farmers’ Market to recreate this non-traditional green bean casserole. Thank you to friends of the Collingswood Farmers’ Market for reading my posts this season. Have a wonderful holiday, and stay warm this winter!” For the instructions and glorious photos, get on over to Stef’s blog .

Easy Sides for Holiday Meals



Susan Mauer Lynch (Yellow Room Upstairs). Easy Sides for Holiday Meals. Susan is all about helping. This week she has some handy tips for “onion hands,” for pouring “wide mouth funneling,” and—oh yes!—for preparing essential side dishes for you Thanksgiving and other holiday meals. You’ll need cole slaw, most likely, and your own cranberry sauce, of course, and what’s a meal without fried onions? Get easy recipes and quick tips at Susan’s blog. She did her shopping for cabbage, cranberries and onions at Formisano, Savoie Organic, Springdale, and Flaim Farms.

For the Animal Lovers
Knowhere Farm Goat Petting Area

Goat Pet Detail

Knowhere Farm Goats in the Petting Area.

This will be your last chance this season to get into the pen with some adorable young goats and take your picture together with a kid. The goats milk soap is wonderful (and also photogenic), but the real attraction of a Knowhere Farm appearance is the chance to get up close and personal with one of these gentle animals. Down by Perkins Art Center. Look for the line.


Small Bills and a Bathroom Key

Many of you know, but for those of you who don’t, I carry small bills for vendors who run out of singles during the Market day. For guest vendors who might not be aware, I also have a key to Perkins Art Center, a Market sponsor, the primary benefit of which, for our vendors is INDOOR PLUMBING!

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.
