Happy April! The 23rd season of the KSQ Farmers Market is full of promise, Kennett begins to bloom, Kennett Heritage Center re-opens today, discounts for Collaborator cardholders, local Easter treats, spring break activities, and more
The 23rd season of the KSQ Farmers Market will start to ramp up this Friday, April 7th, with extended hours from 3pm to 6pm. Kennett Collaborative invites everyone in the community to stop by, discover what’s in season, and see how much weekly shopping can be done at this one-stop community hub.
“Something many people don’t realize is that a true farmers market like ours is the ‘storefront’ for most of the small, family-run businesses who are at market week to week. And for most, these businesses are their livelihood—not just side gigs,” says Market Manager Ros Fenton. “When you make the KSQ Farmers Market part of your grocery shopping routine, you are truly supporting your local community and our local economy. Your hard-earned food dollars go directly into sustaining the businesses of these hard-working local people.”

Open hours will be on Saturdays and Sundays, 12:30 to 4pm.

Once again this year, the Kennett Beautification Committee was hard at work yesterday afternoon bringing a pop of spring color to the planters on State Street with plantings designed by Bill Reynolds of Pratt's Greenhouse. One way to thank them and support their efforts is to save the date for their annual plant sale on May 6th and 7th (just in time for Mother's Day!).
Thank you, as always, for reading. We wish you a bright and beautiful week "Around the Square"!
