Merchantville's "Market Off Centre" will celebrate their last Saturday farmers market of the season on October 26th. The market invites all residents and neighbors to give Monsterville a preview of their enchanting, ghostly or frightful costumes at the first "Halloween Costume Walk" along the sidewalks of downtown. The runway of fashions will begin on the bike path behind Eclipse Brewery and travel the sidewalks of downtown, along Park Avenue, finishing at the market's Kids Zone. This costume walk begins at 11:00 a.m. Young children - under 12 - should be accompanied by parents.
Merchantville is a treasure trove of a variety of well-preserved styles of residential architecture. A classic mix of 19th and early 20th century architecture and tree-lined streets with beautifully maintained gardens define the historic borough and its vital downtown. Less than one square mile, Merchantville is home to almost 3,800 residents. Quaint and intimate, Merchantville offers an unprecedented and authentic sense of community. This interactive walking tour adapts and combines the Merchantville Historical Society's individual district tours. They can be walked separately or together depending what you choose to explore during your time in Merchantville. Detailed descriptions of the houses in each tract are linked to in the directions below or can be obtained in person at Borough Hall, One West Maple Avenue.
