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.

The Clinging-to-Summer Corn Salad

Stef Perna (treatbelly). Summer Corn Salad. Sure, the temps were in the 60s this morning and the sun is coming up later every day. Still, it sometimes feels like summer, especially when you can enjoy the last of our Jersey sweet corn, onions, and peppers. You can get everything you need for Stef’s Clinging-to-Summer Corn Salad at the Market this Saturday (and maybe for a few Saturdays to follow).

IN THE DOG TENT

Paw it 4ward Foundation

The wonderful people of Paw it 4ward Foundation will staff the Dog Tent for us this week, distribute the Official Market leash to your 4-legged companion, and introduce you to adoption possibilities. Personally, we’re hoping they bring Ernest, this 9-month old American Staffordshire charmer to the Market. He’s just 22 pounds and not expected to grow much more. Stop by and fall in love.

 


Say it with Clay

Say it with Clay has a fundraiser space in the BID section of the Market from 8 until noon. At the same time, and continuing until 5pm, cross the street to the studio for live music and refreshments and a chance to support their nonprofit therapy work by picking up a clay item.

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.


New to the Market?

General information about the Market, driving directions and Market locator, plus lots of details about our programs, vendor list, and policies, are available at our website.

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.

Load In

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.


Facebook Promotion

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.

Week 14 of the 2019 Season

THU SEP 12


Today’s Weather

Forecast calls for Scattered Thunderstorms. We’ll be OK as long as they scatter elsewhere. Pay attention to the Weather Policy detailed below. David will be at the site around 1pm. Unless it’s actively storming at the time, we’ll have a Market as usual. If we have to open late, we can do that. Either way, he’ll remain at the site to let shoppers know we’re committed to being at the Market rain or shine.

Stormy Cows

Obviously, the forecast could be better, but we’ve learned to mostly ignore them.
