Week 3 of the 2019 Season
THU JUN 27
Absolutely no threat of rain this Thursday, and sun in the forecast all the way from load-in to break-down. The cows are dancing this week, and shoppers will be out looking for your best Jersey Fresh.
SITE PLAN THU JUN 27
FOR THU JUN 27, I’ve made just a few changes to facilitate easier egress for our big trucks at the end of the Market day. Specca and Nature’s Own will anchor the “top” of the plan with a straight shot to the exit. I’ve relocated small-tent vendors to the west side of the plan where they can take their time breaking down without being in anybody’s exit lane.
The wonderful Barn and Stone House Soap will join us this week with their handmade artisan soaps, personal grooming and cleaning products.
Muth Family Organic Farm of Williamstown (well-known to most farmers and certainly to all organic farmers as masters of their craft) will join us this week to add organic produce to our menu.
Olde World Bakery still has not solved their staffing shortage problem and therefore must delay their arrival again this week. Please, if you can help them find table staff, we’re very eager to add them to our site plan.
ARRIVE NO LATER THAN 2PM. THE ONLY ENTRANCE IS FROM HIGH STREET.
15 MINUTE TIME LIMIT FOR UNLOADING IN THE MARKET.
As you can see, the space is tight for the number of vendors, and getting in and out of our spaces will require planning and patience. Unless you have permission to park a vehicle inside the Market, you’ll have to drive carefully to your spot, unload VERY QUICKLY, then EXIT THE MARKET with your vehicle and set up when you return.
Site Plan THU JUN 27
Still perfecting the site plan for this week.

The directions will bring you to the Rowan College campus just across the street from the entrance to the Market.
Contracts and Fees
Those of you who have not submitted your Application/Contract paperwork need to comply to remain active at the Market and to take advantage of the Fee Rebate Program.
Download the Application from the Mount Holly Contracts link at the top of this website. Complete the app in Word, in PDF, or on paper, and send it to Sean Kennedy, whose name and address are on the first page of the contract package.
FEE REBATE PROGRAM
Prepay your dates to qualify for Fee Rebates. Earn a full 100% rebate for table fees for every Market you attend. Prepay for 10 dates (for example), attend those 10 dates, and you’ll be refunded 100% of your fees at the end of the season.
DAY PAY VENDORS
Afraid of commitment? You can pay on Market day. The Market Director will have receipts for day-pay vendors who prefer the flexibility of paying when they attend, but no rebates can be earned without prepaid dates.
We were very visible on Facebook last week. Not so much this week. If anybody wants to help keep us in front of the local shopping public, let David know you want to lend a hand. Click the link to see what we’ve been up to.
The Township produced a sharp-looking website for our shoppers who think facebook is evil.
For the most part, we’ll let last week’s Featured Vendors be this week’s Featured Vendors too since last week’s drew some bad weather. But we do want to introduce Muth Family Organic Farm, so you’ll probably see them on the page if you visit.
Check back in to this space often. You don’t need to follow a link. Just navigate to http://www.FarmMarketeer.com
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.
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.
