At the Market, October 19th

So as I write this the weather is definitely autumnal. ‘Course climate change may bring temperatures in the 80s this weekend. But at some point I think it’s gotta snow, and climate change may make it a Godzilla of a snow storm. And that’s why I’ve been ordered by The Nemesis Of My Life (Nemesis for shortness) to stock up on the good stuff at the Farmers Market this weekend. Which makes me feel more secure. But not because we’ll be prepared for a huge snow storm. That’s all cool, but most importantly it means there won’t be space in the freezer for Nemesis to hide my body when one of my idiotic shenanigans becomes her “last straw”. Until then, see you at the Market.

We’ve always felt that our market’s location — in Pretzel Park which includes a playground and dog run — has contributed to making the market kid-friendly, pet-friendly, and family-friendly.
We’re also convenient to public transportation: SEPTA Routes: 35, 61, Manayunk-Norristown Regional Rail (Manayunk Line) Map here
