AMERICAN FARMLAND TRUST’S
FARMERS MARKET CELEBRATION
We’re looking for the cream of the crop, the best of America’s farmers markets.
Your recommendation can earn national awards and recognition for your farmers market.
Collingswood Farmers Market
We’re a Producers Market since 2000 promoting Jersey Fresh agriculture. Farmers and artisan food vendors sell what they produce with their own hands with few exceptions clearly marked. Our guest vendors, like the local crepe cart and the fresh juicer, buy their ingredients directly from our own Jersey Fresh vendors and return them to the market lightly processed. Two cafes and a “middle of the Market” coffee roaster provide prepared beverages and foods to enjoy at tables near the two live music stages. We average 5000 customers a week, operate outdoors unless the Governor declares a weather state of emergency for our county, and have established ourselves as an essential component of the community. We solved the problem of too many aggressive dogs by creating an official Market Leash, sold at our Dog Tent, for dogs whose owners agree to abide by our Behavior Guidelines. At our Bag Reduction Tent, we offer 5 clear alternatives to single-use disposable plastic bags, including a “make your own t-shirt bag” table. Six “official Market bloggers” produce recipes and profile content that promote our farmers and their products on our website, facebook page, and 6000+ email subscription list.
