Due to rain, the scheduled Clover Market for Sunday, Sept. 9, has been canceled. In a post on the market’s website, organizers had the following to say:
After carefully reviewing all of the available forecast models and personally consulting with numerous meteorologists including the National Weather Service and the Eastern PA Weather Authority, we have decided to CANCEL the Market for tomorrow, Sunday 9/9, in Chestnut Hill.
Please know that this is not a decision we take lightly, and it’s always tough to have to make this call. We understand the impact to everyone, and this is obviously very disappointing and frustrating. In nearly 10 years of doing this event, and probably close to 100 shows in all kinds of weather, we have only cancelled once before. It is especially challenging since we are a “rain or shine” event (cancellations are always possible for severe/dangerous weather conditions).
HOWEVER … with the current forecasts and guidance coming into agreement and indicating a steady and heavy all day rain starting in the early part of the day and with a flood watch in effect starting tonight (we have areas in this location that are prone to issues with heavy rain), we have decided that this is the most prudent call. Ultimately we have to do what is best for our beloved vendors, team, and of course all of you.
We would very much appreciate the help in getting the word out. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you in a few weeks on Sept 23 in Bryn Mawr.
