Collingswood SAT NOV 03

David Hodges

Cloudy, small chance of showers.

Temps start and stay in the 50s from the opening cowbell to the closing cowbell. Breezes pick up to a worrisome 18mph during breakdown, so tent weights will be essential.

Siteplan for SAT NOV 03

We’ve invited 20 Artists and Crafters to move into the spaces vacated by early-departing farms. Things will be hectic during setup. (I’ll keep my sense of humor if you do!)

Only 3 to go! Let’s sell some Jersey Fresh!

Collingswood Foods SAT NOV 03Scrumptious


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.

Villa Barone. Fresh breads and recently pizza from this Haddon Avenue Collingswood restaurant’s brick oven, sauces and prepared items from the kitchen, and the very popular zeppoles make this a must-visit table.

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.

Guest Vendors and Special Products



  • Charlie’s Crepes
    —Charlie buys his sweet and savory ingredients (always a meat, always a fruit, always delicious) at the Market and whips up new concoctions every week.
  • Duker T’s Catering
    — When the weather changes, Duker puts on the soup pot and blends in the local produce. Recent weeks, he’s sold out of Cream of Crab, Potato/Leek, and Cream of Broccoli. Whatever he puts up this week will go fast. Come early!
  • Barn and Stone House Soap
    — Not just bar soap. Not just for cleansing. Stop by this attractive table and get yourself some laundry soap or handmade aromatherapy
  • Green Aisle Grocery
    —Pickles, nut butters, cocktail mixers, everything seasonal and (except for the nuts) locally-sourced.
  • Cheese, Etc.
    —Always new flavors featuring produce such as Wm. Schober apples and peaches, wines, beers, other local artisan food ingredients.
  • Woof and Whiskers
    —In addition to her immensely popular and thoroughly nutritious biscuit treats, Melanie will debut her Woof and Whiskers labeled CBD oil for pets (pain killer, anxiety reliever, anti-emetic). You already know the benefits. Now you know where you can get it from a trusted source.
  • Inspired Brews Kombucha
    —Nobody does a better job of patronizing local farms to flavor their fermented tea beverages than Inspired Brews. Bring your growler or ask for a sample pour.
  • Our Souls Shine
    — Cindy and Vera will be back every week with gourmet applesauce (from Schober Sons apples!), honey-sweetened lemonade and Cindy’s pindjur made from our own vendors’ eggplant and peppers.
  • MECHA Artisan Chocolates
    — All three Saturdays in November we’re delighted to host the hyperlocal artisan chocolates of MECHA. Your hostess/family/self deserves the very best for the holidays

Winter Squash Snack Cake

Susan Mauer Lynch (YellowRoomUpstairs).
“What to do with all that Squash!”

If you’ve been following Susan’s posts from the Market, you know she’s a tireless patron of our Jersey Fresh farms and reliable for her real-world recipes. If you’re not a fan, where have you been!? This week she’ll tell you how to bake, roast, and make fries of your winter squash; how to turn it into soup, even how to pretend you care about nutrition when what you really want is a tasty snack cake!

In the Dog Tent
Animal Welfare Association



Animal Welfare Association of New Jersey (AWANJ)

The wonderful people of AWANJ will be staffing the Dog Tent for us this week, sharing remarkable stories of rescuing truly needy dogs from the brink of disaster at extreme expense. They’ll distribute the essential Official Market leash to your 4-legged companions and introduce you to adoption possibilities. We don’t make promises, but we’re hoping to meet Paul, a 2-and-a-half-year-old pointer mix who, with a bundle of energy, considers himself “the life of the party.” Come and meet the AWANJ team, and perhaps a new member of the family, at the Dog Tent.

No Music in November



We don’t book Music for the Market in November.

Too often, even if the skies are clear, the temperatures are at odds with finger-picking, keyboard playing, vocal-cord-a-lizing, even guitar strumming. Thank you, Ted Velykis of Collingswood Music, for providing the Music Tent, acquiring our audio equipment, and booking the talent for our west stage. Thank you, Anne O’Donnell Vogelmann, for booking the Music Tent talent for more than a decade.

For the Art Lovers
Handmade Holidays



For the final three weeks of the Market (after the first of the farms have departed for the season), we celebrate local art, craft, and original handmade items sold by the hands that make them. No resale, no thrift items; these are quality juried crafts and specimen art pieces (some practical, some whimsical, all eminently giftable)!

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.
