Kennett Square celebrates the almighty mushroom this weekend and it all begins at the Farmers Market on Friday afternoon with a diverse collection of fresh produce, prepared products, and craft items.  Due to the Mushroom FestivalsCommunity Parade beginning at 6 pm, the vendors along State Street will need to close up at 4:30.  Other vendors in the alleyway will remain until 6:00 pm.  We apologize for any inconvenience! 

       Stop by the La Cucina Verde table and ask Annmarie about her “Ladies Night Out”, in-home cooking classes that feature fresh, local, seasonal ingredients.  Collaborate with Annmarie to develop a menu that suits your fancy, invite your girlfriends, and make it a party.

       The cooler weather heralds the return of Designs by Francine’s Chocolates this week.  The apple cider is flowing at Frecon Farms.  John from London Vale Farm has harvested a wide assortment of winter squash – Blue Hubbard (large & baby), Red Kuri, Cinderella, Baby Turks Turban, Spaghetti (striped & regular), Butternut (large & small), Buttercup (green & red), and Delecata, nicknamed the Sweet Potato Squash.  Phew!!  That’s a lot of squash!

First Friday vendors will be on hand to sell their artwork and crafts.  Also ask Market Manager Abby about the plans for the Fermentation Festival on September 28th and buying tickets for the exciting new Meet The Makers event that evening.

Hope to see you at the Market this Friday, 2-6 pm!
