Collingswood SAT NOV 16

David Hodges

Sunny but cold. Temps in the 30s.

Chilly temperatures.
Temps start in the 30s and pretty much stay there, but with sun throughout. 

That’s not the scary part. Wind is the scary part.
Wind is forecast to be substantial, double-digit all the way, topping out at 17 mph. That makes the cold feel colder, and it can be disaster to delicate or lightweight table-top displays. Be advised. 

Simplify your presentation. Tent weights are demanded. Bring bungees to lash your tent to your neighbor’s tent. Keep your lettuces inside the truck.

Revised Siteplan for SAT NOV 16

Please note that since Friday, a few changes have occurred.

Formisano Farms will NOT ATTEND, so I was able to re-locate some participants to their spaces beneath the Speedline (spaces 60-64).

  • The Dog Tent has moved.
  • Varsha Patel’s Henna Art has moved.
  • Canary Works can park next to space 01.
  • Sara’s Produce will occupy the “corn truck” end-cap at the top of the plan.

Collingswood Foods SAT NOV 16

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 back in their usual space after a couple weeks off. Lost Bread Co. of Philadelphia has taken up the familiar bakery space.

SAVORY BREAD PUDDING WITH MUSHROOMS AND LEEKS

Susan Mauer Lynch (YellowRoomUpstairs) Savory Bread Pudding with Mushrooms and Leeks. Start with a Sourdough Potato Bread from Lost Bread Co. (they mill their own grains!), cheese and eggs from Hillacres Pride, Leeks from Flaim or Formisano, fresh herbs from Flaim, and Mushrooms from Davidsons. Bread puddings are so variable, but this one is gorgeous and so hearty it’s perfect for the Thanksgiving table! See the full recipe and “construction” advice at Susan’s blog!

BEEF STEW WITH RED WINE (IN THE INSTANT POT)

Denine Gorniak (the bicycle-chef) Beef Stew with Red Wine in the Instant Pot. Stew meat doesn’t have to be expensive, but the cut does matter, says Denine. Pick up a good chuck roast from Hillacres Pride, Nature’s Own, or Buck Wild Bison and cut it into chunks, trimming some of the excess fat. You’ll need root veggies (carrots, onions, parsnips all available at the Market) and maybe sweet Lilly German Butter Potatoes from Savoie Organic. Mouth watering yet? Go to Denine’s blog for the rest!

No Music in November

CollsMusic

THANKS TO TED VELYKIS OF COLLINGSWOOD MUSIC

We don’t book Music for the Market in November.

Too often, even if the skies are clear, the temperatures are at odds with finger-picking, keyboard playing, vocal-cord-a-lizing, even guitar strumming. Thank you, Ted Velykis of Collingswood Music, for providing the Music Tent, acquiring our audio equipment, and booking the talent for our west stage. Thank you, Anne O’Donnell Vogelmann, for booking the Music Tent talent for more than a decade.


For the Art Lovers
Handmade Holidays

Ballot for Marketeer

HANDMADE HOLIDAYS Sweepstakes

This week, SAT NOV 16, we’ll be trying something new for the Handmade Holidays. We’ll invite our shoppers to vote for their favorite artists and crafters (and by favorite we mean “most likely to get my money when I have some”). We’ll tally the votes for promotional purposes and draw one winner at random for $50 in Market Gift Certificates to be spent on art. To be repeated on SAT NOV 23 as well.

HANDMADE HOLIDAYS final two weeks

For the final four weeks of the Market (after the first of the farms have departed for the season), we celebrate local art, craft, and original handmade items sold by the hands that make them. No resale, no thrift items; these are quality juried crafts and specimen art pieces (some practical, some whimsical, all eminently giftable)!

Small Bills and a Parking Pass

Many of you know, but for those of you who don’t, I carry small bills for vendors who run out of singles, fives, or tens during the Market day. For guest vendors who might not be aware, I also have parking passes to the Lumberyard Garage where you can park for free, with no meter, and free up a space for 10 or 15 of your customers to use during the four hours of the Market.

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.
