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.

Mashed Potato Pancakes
Susan Mauer Lynch (Yellow Room Upstairs). Mashed Potatoes (and Pancakes). Used to be (though we might pronounce the word differently), potatoes were potatoes. Now, of course, we know that different potatoes yield better results for different uses. Susan makes her selections from the several varieties at Savoie Organic’s table this week and uses some magical crumbs to create perfect panko-crusted potato pancakes. Follow the link for photos and the recipe.

New Jersey Beekeepers (Mid-State Chapter)
FIRST TIME AT THE MARKET.
The New Jersey Beekeepers Association (Mid-State Chapter) will join us Saturday!
They’ll be selling raw blueberry honey made by bees who were charged with the duty of pollinating blueberry fields in Hammonton, NJ. This is not blueberry infused honey—it gets its subtle blueberry flavor from the natural pollination and nectar gathering process.
What to expect:
“We will have some other regional NJ honey to taste so people can get an idea of how the honey flavor changes based on the kinds of local flower nectar the bees forage. We’ll also have information about seasonal plants and trees that feed bees and other pollinators throughout the year. We will have hive equipment, natural beeswax, a fresh frame of honey, examples of DIY items using beeswax, propolis & honey with handouts of recipes & ‘how-to’s’ and lots of things for kids to look at, taste, smell, touch and as well as educational coloring pages to take home.”
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.
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.
