Fake $100 Bills

Fake $100 Bills

Last month Tatiana (of Wild & Co) recognized a fake $100 bill a customer was trying to pass at the Market. She didn’t accept it, of course, and the counterfeiter immediately left the Market without trying to get anyone else to take his bills.

Since then, we’ve heard of fake 100s being presented at Flaim Farms and Hillacres Pride as well.

Be wary. Farmers’ Markets are often targeted by counterfeiters. Here’s a video to help you recognize a good 100.

Cowbell Policy

Why We Need a Policy

Early-bird shoppers are starting to get pushy about their perceived right to buy from vendor tables before 8am, making it very uncomfortable for vendors who are too busy setting up their tables to accommodate the “before hours” demands.

We just put this on facebook and at Collingswood Market dot com

I hope it seems friendly . . . but reasonable . . . but firm.

It only works if we’re consistent.

I suggest you blame it on Dave. “Sorry, the Market prohibits us from selling before 8am. Dave’s in the red shirt and Market cap. Ask him yourself.”
