Shopping for greensSeasonal produce is now entering its prime – fresh green peas, Spring greens, and cherry tomatoes will be features of several vendors this week.  Frecon Farms will have their first cherries of the year, as well.

Flowers are also “hot” with Shady Grove Greenhouses  bringing Blue Hydrangea, Double Knockout Roses, Russian Sage, and a wide variety of hanging baskets, flower bouquets, planters, and perennials. 

Sunset Park cookiesTo soothe the sweet tooth, visit Sunset Park Gluten Free Cookies, who are now using brown rice syrup in their cookies, instead of sugar.  Designs by Francine will feature chocolate ganache-dipped fresh fruit, and the pie & cupcake ladies will certainly have some great options.

It’s a First Friday and that means our special craft vendors will also be with us, including Ceramics by Alex Beam-Ward, Bumblebee Bumz diaper covers, and hand-knit crafts by Clerico Creations.

As part of the First Friday activities, Kiera McNichols will be entertaining shoppers with her fiddle.  Stay in town for the evening’s Art Stroll – find details of more events at www.historickennettsquare.com/artstroll
