Site Plan for SAT AUG 10
Collingswood Foods SAT AUG 10
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 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.

Peach Pie Artistry
Denine Gorniak (the bicycle-chef). Everything’s Peachy! You’ll need to follow the link to Denine’s blog for the full story of the 2019 Peach Pie Baking Contest. Here’s a taste: “Eight judges had a peach of a time tasting all 18 pies and finding a clear consensus. This was the hardest year yet to pick a winner. So many of the pies were that good. Many could have taken home a top prize on looks alone.”
Live Music on Two Stages!

MATINEE RELICS play the west stage. You’ll be intrigued by nostalgic, romantic songs you can’t quite place and others you can name at the first notes.
NO RELATION BAND (SAM AND JACQUIE) in the Collingswood Music tent. No Relation takes many shapes and sizes, but this latest duo of Sam and Jacquie is the most harmonious yet. Tunes both fresh and familiar.
For the Art Lovers SAT AUG 10
FEATURED ARTIST. Jody Thorpe & Michaline Schrade Mystical Blossoms. Herbal bath, body, and wellness. “We maintain two gardens in Cherry Hill, New Jersey that provide us with the plants that go into our body oils, soap, roller balls, tea, salves and flower essences. We also sustainably forage throughout the year.”
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.
