Handmade Holidays at the Farmers Market
|8:00 am - 12:00 pm|
Tis the season! The much anticipated Handmade Holidays at the Collingswood Farmers’ Market starts November 4. The gift bazaar is a seasonal extension of the mega-popular Farmers’ Market in Collingswood. As temperatures drop and harvest season winds down the Market expands to fill spaces with crafters and artisans selling gifts and holiday-themed items like tree decorations and holiday wreaths
Gifts and goods offered run from the practical (candles, coffee mugs, sake sets) to the whimsical (assemblage jewelry, toys, hair accessories) to the esoteric (photography, paper arts) to the merely beautiful (home décor, ceramics, knitwear).
Many regular vendors at the Market produce and package beautiful holiday giftables, notably Rochelle Rose, (handmade soaps, bath and beauty products), Green Aisle Grocery (healthy gourmet shelflife edibles), John & Kira’s Chocolate, Dee Dee’s Garden Pesto, Collingswood’s own Cheese, Etc. Gourmet Gifts (gift baskets) along with dozens more bringing unique gifts and crafts.
Handmade Holidays gives space to 30 exhibitors on a rotating basis so shoppers can expect to see different choices when they make return visits. Plus, many season-long produce and food vendors are part of the November Market. It is a time for late season crops and year-round agricultural products such as meat, cheese, and honey. The Saturday before Thanksgiving dinner is a must-go tradition for many – a popular date regardless of the weather.
“The bazaar is a true artists market. Nothing is resale. Everything sold is purchased from the hand of the artist who made it, crafted it, molded it, wove it, sewed it, carved it, or assembled it,” says Market Director David Hodges.
Handmade Holidays at the Collingswood Farmer’s Market run every Saturday in November from the 4th to the 18th from 8am to 12pm between Collings and Irvin Ave along PATCO. Charles M. Kuperus, New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture, has called us “one of the finest markets in the State.” We were recently honored as “Best Farm Stand” in NJ Monthly Magazine’s Best of Jersey issue due to its “authentic rural feel and hustle-bustle.” It was also named best small market in the country in an American Farmland Trust poll.
