Other Attractions

Farmer’s Market

The Farmer’s Market has been moved to Irvin Ave for the day- to make room for all of the vehicles from out-of-towners.

Car Show

Antique and classic cars and motorcycles will be on display. Which is your favorite?

It’s The First Farmers’ Market Of The Season!

 

Selected as the best Small Farmers’ Market in the country (that’s right) by American Farmland Trust:

IT’S MARKET SEASON IN COLLINGSWOOD!

The Collingswood Farmers’ Market is open from 8 am until 12 noon, every Saturday from the first Saturday in May until the Saturday before Thanksgiving. With the changing seasons, expect the freshest produce, tastiest baked goods, the most creative crafts, and the revival of the downtown feel of Collingswood after a mild, but long-lasting winter.

Things To Know Before You Go To The Market

The first couple of weeks are great for plants and some early season produce like Asparagus and lettuces. Don’t miss the Market’s stand complete with printed tote bags, decals, and other swag to help support the market.

Parking can be a little tricky, plan on getting in early to the limited parking in off of Atlantic, or try to small lot by Irving. Also available is the public parking garage in the Lumberyards. All parking is paid in these locations.

Cash please, remember to bring some as very few vendors have the ability to process credit and debit cards.

If you are bringing your dog, please visit the dog tent in the middle of the market to get your official Collingswood Farmers’ Market leash. This allows for local shelters to receive a donation, while helping to restrict the number of pets mingling with shoppers. Cost is $10 for the season, $2 for the day. Service dogs are free.

There is a movement to cut down on the amount of plastic bags used on market days, so you can help out by bringing your own bags or check out this year’s initiative:
