Collingswood SAT AUG 18

Too soon to predict weather.

Farmers’ Market Director David Hodges will be off on his annual one-week vacation (this year to Copenhagen and Stockholm) on SAT AUG 18, but expects the Market to experience a typical New Jersey summer Saturday morning: humid with a chance of showers.

Mostly Cloudy Cows


Siteplan for SAT AUG 18

The plan is truncated this week to accommodate traffic for Collingswood’s annual Crafts and Fine Arts Festival.

The usual Meat Market at the east end of the Market (the bottom of the site plan) is turned over to vehicle traffic, so Nature’s Own Farm and Woods Edge Wools will take the week off.

However, Buck Wild Bison and the new Headquarters Farm Lamb tables will move to the west end of the Market (the top of the site plan), so you can stock up on those favorites.

You’ll also find Hillacres Pride in their usual location for meats and cheeses from their own livestock.

Guido's Zeppolis

TASTY ZEPPOLES FROM VILLA BARONE

REVELATION CAFÉ! Local food heroes Revolution Roasters and the Constellation Collective have teamed up to form a new food-and-beverage café at the west end of the Market. Pull up a chair in their seating area and enjoy locally-roasted coffee and breakfast treats.

Amber Grain Bakery has closed its doors to give baker Stephen Kramer a chance to take a new job as a product development wizard. We’ll try to coax Dulce to the Market to ensure that we always have a BID bakery presence.

Villa Barone. Giovanni (John) Barone will stand in for his father Guido this week, selling sauces, perhaps cheeses, the very popular zeppoles, and other Italian favorites from this popular Collingswood restaurant.

Sara’s Produce, by special arrangement, is the one source for produce NOT grown in New Jersey. They are mandated to bring us the “exotics” so our shoppers won’t need to go to the supermarket for an avocado or a lemon.

EAST STAGE MUSIC TENT. John Rossi. Give him a microphone and a chair. John will bring his Martin guitar and his good humor and charm the crowd with familiar tunes to brighten everyone’s mood.

WEST STAGE UNDER PATCO. Matinee Relics.  Small accordion, big guitar. Regina Baker and Kevin Sullivan are “two separate people who share one affection for old jazz music, standards, beautifully-written-but-decades-forgotten songs, and Manouche-style swing.”

CARVED CUP FROM MONIQUE PLATT DUTILL DAUGHTERS

Small Bills and a Bathroom Key

Bring your own small bills for SAT AUG 18, please. David will be away.

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!

Man holding tiny dollar bills


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.

Collingswood SAT AUG 11

More seasonally transitional weather.

Seems this summer there’s always a thunderstorm SOMEWHERE. The early forecast calls for Scattered Thunderstorms. We’re calling this week a Cat/Cow. Expect temps in the 70s and clouds, with likely showers somewhere in South Jersey. (Last week’s forecast was MUCH more dire, but the rain was a brief disruption.)

Siteplan for SAT AUG 11

SIGNIFICANT CHANGES AT THE LAST MINUTE.
This third version of the Site Map may not be the last, but it’s the latest.

  • Hurley’s Landscaping can’t be with us this week, so we’ve turned over their space to Weckerly’s Ice Cream and two non-food participants.
  • Headquarters Farm Lamb. We’re delighted to announce the late addition of a brand new vendor who can provide any cut of lamb your heart desires with enough notice. This week, and next, Lake District Englishman Roger Byrom (now a resident of Stockton NJ) will bring what he already has in stock and take his place in the “Meat Market” at the east end of the Market.

ANNUAL ANIMAL ADOPTATHON: This week, the color coding identifies the section at the top of the Market as the space set aside for the annual gathering of animal shelters and rescues known as the Adopt-a-thon!

THE MEAT MARKET: At the “other end” of the plan—the east end at Perkins Art Center—we’ve collected farms that raise livestock, including heritage beef and pork, yak and alpacas, chickens for their meat and eggs, pasture-raised lamb, and bison.

Peach Pies 2018

SOME OF THIS YEAR’S PEACH PIES

Denine Gorniak (TheBicycle-Chef). Peach Pie Contest 2018. Two things we’ve come to count on in recent years: every summer, wonderful bakers will contribute fabulous pies to the annual Peach Pie Baking Contest, and every summer, Denine Gorniak will chronicle the event with beautiful photographs and details about not just the pies, but also their intrepid creators. Happily, our expectations have been met again this year. Denine took photos of every pie and every winning contestant, sampled all the peachy goodness, and compiled the results at her blog post. Follow the link to see all the winners and learn a bit about the bakers who brought their A game to the FOFM (Friends of the Farmers’ Market) table last week.

PEPPERS AT THE SPRINGDALE FARMS TABLE

Lisa Grant (JerseyGirlCooks). Skillet Stuffed Peppers. Not all the ingredients came from the Market, but the peppers did. Lisa found her sweet bell peppers at the Springdale Farms table and filled them with a ground turkey and brown rice stuffing. These can be done in a skillet to avoid turning on the oven and heating the kitchen in the summer swelter. Follow the link to Lisa’s blog for the details and cooking instructions. And check in later to see what she does with the colorful Formisano Farms peppers she’s planning to use next.

LION’S MANE MUSHROOM CAKES

Susan Mauer Lynch (YellowRoomUpstairs). Crab Cakes without the Crab. Susan never fails to surprise us with her Market finds. This week she’s found a way to produce a favorite seafood dish from the Lion’s Mane mushrooms at Davidson’s Exotic Mushrooms, but without any seafood. Along the way, she found a use for eggs from Savoie Organic, and some Mac ‘n’ Cheese from Hillacres Pride. Follow the link to her blog to learn the secret of crabless crab cakes.

SCALLION DUTCH BABY

Stef Perna (treatbelly). Scallion Dutch Baby. Nobody photographs food like our Official Market Blogger Stef Perna. Dieters should avoid her blog because her photos actually add calories. But lovers of food and cooking who want to discover something new, like this week’s “Dutch Baby” recipes, need to click through directly. Dutch babies aren’t quite pancakes because they bake in the oven, but neither are they cakes, or omelets. Stef used Flaim Farms scallions, Springdale Farms potted chives and Wm. Schober & Sons blueberries for her sweet and savory babies.

Email Blast 2018

10 SHELTERS AND RESCUES

Adopt-a-thon

Every week we host a local animal welfare agency to staff the Dog Tent: a rescue, a shelter, a veterinary hospital or an animal foster agency.

This week, SAT AUG 11, we’re hosting not one but 10 Animal Rescues or Shelters at our annual Animal Adoptathon.

Several love connections have been made at previous Adoptathons that have led to permanent “forever placements” for our shoppers.

Come by Saturday to meet some very compassionate people and some beautiful animals in need of your affection.

Rossi Sengin

JOHN ROSSI / MARC SENGIN

TWO OUTSTANDING MARKET FAVORITES

EAST STAGE MUSIC TENT. Marc Sengin.  Mark is very much a solo act, but with his new harmonizer he’ll sound like a trio. You’ll think you’re listening to Peter, Paul, and Mary (or a dozen other acts from the 60s and 70s). Bring a tambourine and play along.

WEST STAGE UNDER PATCO. John Rossi. Give him a microphone and a chair. John will bring his Martin guitar and his good humor and charm the crowd with familiar tunes to brighten everyone’s mood.


For the Art Lovers
Fred Chase Woodcraft

Bowl

FEATURED ARTIST. Fred Chase (Wooden Bowls and Vessels). Fred won’t say it, so we’ll say it for him. The phrase “wood bowls and vessels” doesn’t begin to describe the beauty and artistry of these magnificent pieces of practical art. You may think you have no use for a bowl, but Fred’s work uncovers the ineluctable and presents hand-shaped nature at its organic best.
