Site Plan for SAT SEP 07
Collingswood Foods SAT SEP 07
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.

Susan Mauer Lynch (Yellow Room Upstairs). Profile: Charlie’s Crepes. Susan goes in depth with Charles Koory of Charlie’s Crepes this week, following him from the Market to his Merchantville restaurant, where he serves crepes every week filled with fillings and sauces he and his wife Lisa Ciacciarelli Koory prepare from ingredients bought at the Market (Buck Wild Bison, Hillacres Pride bacon, Schober’s peaches and apples, Viereck’s tomatoes, Savoie’s potatoes, Davidson’s mushrooms…to list a few.)

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.
