Chicken Meatballs

Susan Mauer Lynch (Yellow Room Upstairs). Out of this world Chicken Meatballs! How many of our vendors can you patronize to produce a simple dish a five-year-old can make and enjoy? Susan set herself the challenge, starting with ground chicken from Hillacres Pride and basil from Flaim Farms, zucchini from A T Buzby and Jersey sweet corn from Muth Organic Farm, finished off with parmesan cheese from Villa Barone. Follow the link to her blog for the mouth-watering results.

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.
