"Home of the Jersey Clam"

Great Day at Collingswood Farmers’ Market

What a great first day at the Collingswood Farmers’ Market.   One thing I know for sure,  if you haven’t had the chance to visit the market, it should definitely be on you to do list for a Saturday morning.  The atmosphere is wonderful, great live music, easy to get to and plenty of parking.   The variety is unbelievable.  Truly, there is something delicious for everyone (and your beloved dogs too.). I just have to take a copy of the list  of what is available (when is season) at the market from their website: collingswoodmarket.com so you can see for yourself:

• Jersey Fresh vegetables and fruits from several farms/orchards
• Conventional and certified Organic produce
• Farm made fruit & veggie pies
• Poultry pot pies
• Family-farm cheeses from PA
• Lamb and beef, whole free range chickens and eggs
• Fruit preserves, jams and butters
• Whole grain bakery specialties
• Sweet bakery treats
• Authentic european-style breads
• Jersey Grown potted herbs, plants, & cut flowers
• Annual and perennial bedding plants
• NJ greenhouse-grown landscaping plants
• Local beekeepers with several varieties of honey and bee products
• Gourmet fresh baked dog treats
• Handmade natural herbal soaps

and of course, now our fresh littleneck and topneck clams.

The weather started off iffy today,  but it turned out to be a beautiful.  I would like to thank all the vendors that welcomed us so warmly, it was great to meet and talk to all the vendors,  some that  have been there since the beginning, I believe some twelve years!  And also,  thanks to David Hodges (market site manager) who helped us with such a smooth transition for our first day.   I can’t forget to mention, the most friendly people visiting the market.  It was so great to meet and speak with so many local, faithful market attendees.  We are looking forward to seeing you next Saturday!
