At the Market, September 28th

So life is tough, ya know? I mean, this week’s cartoon may know something. Maybe those falling acorns aren’t some lovely autumn occurrence but actually a dive bombing army of small psycho assassins sent by a justifiably angry Mother Nature? Life is tough. The other day my spouse says to me in our home, “Why you gotta talk to me every time you see me?” Really? But I get it. We been together a long time. Life is tough. That’s why I love our Farmers Market. This week we got farmers, mushrooms, breads, cookies, wine, teas, new food trucks, crochet, art that mixes traditional and digital, the Fall Line of handcrafted soy candles, handmade soap, and again wonderful harpist Sadie! And nobody asks me why I’m talking to them!

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
