A Little Knowledge
Want to Up your Market Game?
When you prep for a visit to the Market, do you check the Food Vendor List to see who’s growing what?
For that matter, did you know there’s an official website at CollingswoodMarket.com?
GET OUT THE VOTE!
In advance of the upcoming primary election day, three local organizations will be at the Market encouraging all registered voters to exercise our civic privilege.
Look for Team Collingswood Democrats, the League of Women Voters, and Collingswood Progressive Democrats in spaces 29, 30, and 31.
Collingswood Foods SAT JUN 01
Collingswood Section. To emphasize our own community’s food economy, at the west end of the Market, Collingswood food businesses have their own section to promote their contributions to the Borough’s vibrant food scene.
Revolution Roasters and the El Sitio Grill have teamed up to form a new food-and-beverage café at the west end of the Market. Revolution handles the fresh-roasted beverages, while El Sitio provides fantastic Ecuadoran specialties including empanadas and Pan de Yuca (cassava cheese bread treats).
Villa Barone features familiar favorite sauces, tasty zeppolis, sometimes their own fresh mozzarella. Sara’s Produce by special arrangement is the one source for produce NOT grown in New Jersey. Lost Bread Co. of Philadelphia has taken up the familiar bakery space inside the BID section.
Fans of the delicious spinach and pepperoni strombolis from DiBartolo Bakery will find them, not in the BID section, but at the Tortilla Press café at the east end of the Market.

SAT JUN 01
A NOVEL PAIRING
DAVE KELLY will be on the West Stage this week, with SHANNON VASILE. That’s never happened before, and we’re giddy with anticipation to hear these two Market favorites together for the first time.
If you favor a more predictable outcome, head to the Music Tent for the always reliably brilliant TRIO NOVA DUO.
For the Art Lovers
FEATURED ARTIST. LISA CONFORA (Nature’s Energy). Ceramics and Jewelry. Lisa creates functional, wheel-thrown pottery with design elements inspired by nature and magical symbols. Her free-spirited jewelry collection is made from vintage, upcycled, fair trade, clay and copper materials.
Bag Reduction Program
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.
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.
