The nostaligic smells of pine and cinnamon fill the air as the elves are at work baking, wrapping, and decorating for the Holiday season. The hustle and bustle of these projects should be fun, not a hassle. Come to the Kennett Winter Farmers Market this Friday and find just the right ingredients and gifts to inspire your own Holiday activities. Live music by Tim Mudgett will also help put you in the right frame of mind.
The Winter Farmers Market will be set up along East State Street and in the Genesis Brick Walkway from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Through December 26th, enjoy 3-hours of FREE parking in the metered spaces in the Municipal Parking Garage. Friday is also the monthly Kennett Art Stroll, with local artists exhibits, live music, refreshments, and a joyous mood! The next Winter Farmers Market is scheduled for Friday, December 16th. We hope to see you soon!
