Week 11 of the 2019 Season
THU AUG 22
Too soon to predict the weather.
Dave’s on vacation.
Farmers’ Market Director David Hodges will be off on his annual one-week vacation (this year to Wales and the Lake District of England), so he’ll miss the Market on THU AUG 22, but he expects the Market will experience a typical New Jersey summer Thursday afternoon: temps in the low to mid 80s, and humid with a chance of scattered thunderstorms.
Siteplan for THU AUG 22
Check your Location.
Come to the Site knowing where to set up, please.
Dave won’t be in Mount Holly to help you find your spot, but Sean Kennedy has been given a can of green spray paint to mark those nail heads that anchor the plan. Help him out by being prepared. Thanks.
SITE PLAN THU AUG 22
FOR THU AUG 22.
A few changes to last week’s site plan.
- Taylor’d Eatz is back with Cajun and other prepared food specialties.
- Our new artist this week, Ashlesha Parekh, will be doing henna body art on demand as Henna by Ash.
- Aimee Eckert is back too, with her recycled relics jewelry.
- Hoop House Bakery returns after a one-week break.
- Robins Nest has settled into an every-other-week schedule. This week, they’re off.
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.
You can use (and tell your new customers to use) 2 High Street Mount Holly NJ
as a destination for mapping programs.
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.
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.
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. New this month: I now come with two rolls of quarters.
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.
