More than a dozen African American cultural and community organizations from all across Pennsylvania are marking Juneteenth, the national holiday that commemorates the end of chattel slavery in America, with freedom celebrations.
As part of this statewide celebration, Kennett Square—once called “a hot-bed of abolitionism” by enraged Southern slave-keepers—will host a broad range of programs and activities today and tomorrow.
Stock up on the fruits (and vegetables, meat, eggs, dairy, and more) of our local farmers' labor every Friday at the KSQ Farmers Market. Growing food for you is a labor of love for small farmers—they love supplying our community with the incredibly fresh, nutrient-dense foods they grow, and they love getting to know customers as you shop each week.
Right now broccoli and cauliflower are in their prime, and the many different varieties you'll find at the market are a feast for the eyes and the palate—tender, sweet, and flavorful. Simply steam, roast, or grill, then toss with olive oil or butter, drizzle with lemon or balsamic, and season to taste.
Find the KSQ Farmers Market outside the Creamery every Friday afternoon from 3pm to 6pm.
As always, the weekly KSQ Farmers Market newsletter is the best source for details about what's in season and which vendors you will find at the market each week.
