Mt Holly THU JUL 18

David Hodges

Week 6 of the 2019 Season

THU JUL 18

WEATHER UPDATE 11:30 AM
THU JUL 18

This is the actual (not the forecast) weather map for Philadelphia at 11:31 AM.

Weather Update

Until about 11am,
there was no actual weather to track.
But now, at 11:30, the cells are forming to our west
and headed our way.

Here’s the latest one from 1:07 pm

Weather Update 3

I’m reluctant to cancel for a mere forecast,
but now that there is actual storm activity to track,
it seems likely this is what we’ll face
at 5pm.

BIG CATCH SEAFOOD
will have to buy 40 pounds of fresh seafood regardless
and would like to have a Market, but will always side with the farms.
Anybody want some frozen scallops, tuna, salmon, or mahi mahi next week?

 

New-4

I have to admit this forecast is pretty intimidating. It has changed dramatically every day for several days, but if this is the last one, it’s not encouraging. I take the “Rain or Shine” policy seriously—Markets thrive on consistency—but if it’s actively raining at 1pm and at 2pm, then the rest of the forecast will be hard to ignore.

Please use text to communicate about weather updates.

We will not hold a Market during an active thunderstorm.

SITE PLAN THU JUL 18

07 JUL 18

FOR THU JUL 18.  A few changes to last week’s siteplan.

  • Muth Family Organic Farm of Williamstown is back this week in their spaces from two weeks back.
  • Stellitano’s Farm will locate their two-tent operation this week alongside the Music Tent.
  • Robin’s Nest is back.
  • We have a new artist from Mount Holly this week (Gonzo Glass)
  • We have a new Music duo
  • Big Catch will move to the southwest corner and feature mahi mahi along with the usual scallops, tuna, and salmon.

 

Load In

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.


Click here for driving directions.

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.


Facebook Promotion

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.

Website

The Township  produced a sharp-looking website for our shoppers who think facebook is evil.

Let David know if you want to be on the Featured Vendors’ list for THU JUL 18. We welcome all our vendors to provide us with information about their farms and foods. Shoppers appreciate knowing more about you.

Future Updates

Check back in to this space often. You don’t need to follow a link. Just navigate to http://www.FarmMarketeer.com 


Small Bills 

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.
