Forecast for SAT AUG 10

Another beauty.

Temps in the 70s during setup, warming into the 80s. No chance of rain. Moderate humidity. Maybe the best one yet.

Sunny with much milder temperatures than recent Saturdays. Nothing to note except the increasing breeziness toward noon. Tent weights required.

Peach Pie 2019

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!
SAT AUG 10

LIVE MUSIC ON TWO STAGES FROM 9AM

Relics No Relation

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.

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.

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.
