Forecast for SAT OCT 26
Official forecast for SAT OCT 26
Crisp and Cool Market weather. Cloudy but no chance of rain. Mild breezes. Chilly, yes, but that’s great for the produce, cheese, and meat. (Consider it a morning in the Crisper section.)
Site Plan for SAT OCT 26
Collingswood Foods SAT OCT 26
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 is off for two more weeks until SAT NOV 11. Lost Bread Co. of Philadelphia has taken up the familiar bakery space.

Minestrone Soup in the Instant Pot
Denine Gorniak (the bicycle-chef). Minestrone Soup in the Instant Pot. In about an hour, Denine prepped a trove of vegetables she found at the Market: carrots, celery, onions, garlic, then peppers and squash, potatoes, late tomatoes, maybe some pumpkin. Follow the link to her blog for instructions on how to produce this hearty soup in an instant pot, pressure cooker, or smart cooker.
Susan Mauer Lynch (Yellow Room Upstairs)
Susan Mauer Lynch (Yellow Room Upstairs). Sous Vide. This week’s food blog post is about an appliance. Susan says, “In the two weeks that I’ve had this new gadget I have sous vide six different items that were all purchased at my favorite Collingswood Farmers’ Market. And all were great successes!” Everything from poached eggs and potatoes to filet mignon came from Savoie Organic or Hillacres Pride. Click through to Yellow Room Upstairs to see photos and recipes.

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.

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.
