What beautiful, unseasonably warm weather we are enjoying right now! It makes it hard to believe the holidays are just around the corner. If you haven't ordered a Thanksgiving turkey yet, there's still time! Read more in the notes below.

Shop local for gifts! As you begin holiday list making & shopping, consider the unique gift possibilities at market. This week, be sure to check out the options from Bee Our Guest, Brandywine Bee & Whiskey Hollow!

A few notes for 11/13:

  • We would appreciate your consideration in allowing only Seniors + others at-risk to shop in the first half hour, from 3–3:30pm. All others are welcome from 3:30–5pm!
  • Preorders continue to be welcomed & encouraged by vendors who offer the option. It's a great way to ensure you get what you need—and it makes your market trip go faster now that hours are shorter.
  • Order your heritage Thanksgiving turkey from Canter Hill via email or in person. While they only have larger sizes left, consider it an opportunity to freeze the delicious leftovers for easy winter soups, stews & casseroles! BONUS: get 30% off Deer Creek's new PA PRIDE beer after you order a turkey from Canter Hill!
  • Two regular vendors have wrapped up their seasons at KSQ: Breezy Acre Flowers (Ben) and Rex Farms / Big Hill Ciderworks (Troy). If you're looking for Big Hill's cider locally, try KSI Crafts or Waywood Beverage — or order online directly from Big Hill!
  • Please feel free to borrow one of the wagons at entry to carry your market haul! Just return it when done so we can sanitize the handle for the next customer.

See you Friday! 3–3:30pm for Seniors + others at-risk / 3:30–5pm for all
