Vendor Lineup for Friday, March 23rd / 3pm to 5pm
We are beyond excited to introduce you to a new local baker this week! Please join us in welcoming Brandywine Valley Bread, made just down the road in Downingtown. Fran bakes incredibly flavorful, naturally leavened (true sourdough!) breads. This week, he plans to have freshly baked baguettes, semolina loaves (with semolina from Green Meadow Farm), whole wheat, pain au chocolat, and more. We hope to bring Fran in as a regular vendor for the main season, so come show him some local love this week, Kennett Square!
