What’s Fresh at Kennett Square Farmer’s Market, June 22

Thinking about swinging by Kennett Square tomorrow? Market trips are always the perfect way to spend a relaxing Friday, stocking up on produce, chatting with the locals and discovering new items. Making a fresh appearance at this week’s market are perfect goods to keep you sailing through the hot weather like tea-infused truffles from Designs by Francine and La Cucina Verde (Annmarie)’s delicacies featuring pesto, quinoa salad and apricot butter.

John, at London Vale Farm has sweet corn for the taking, Taste Artisanal is offering their Rosemary Cracked Pepper Chevre with Fig Preserve, Gluten-Free cupcakes and large cookie “cakes,” are up for grabs from Fred’s Sunset Park Gluten Free, and Countryside Farm and Bakery has potatoes and okra. There is such a wonderful variety to choose from and every vendor offers the finest goods around.

Prepare to stock up on your favorites and maybe a few extras in order to make this simple, but slammin’, muffin recipe. See you at the market!
