On Thursday, May 2nd, I got home from school and found myself incapable of keeping my eyes open. I was sleepy, bored, and perusing my Twitter feed. Quickly I came across a tweet from #DowningtownDOES. (PS- I highly suggest adding all of the local blogs and newspapers to your own Twitter feed to keep you busy in a new area.) The tweet stated “First ever Downingtown Farmers Market tonight from 3-7 p.m.”
Being a complete foodie, I had to jump in my car and head over there. When I arrived, I couldn’t believe how many cars there were! I was happy to be amongst others who share in my beliefs of shopping local and eating healthy. I wandered around with other dog-friendly hipsters and taste-tested delicious cheeses and honeys. I closed my eyes and laid in the grass, enjoying the music of a young group of violinists. I’m happy to report that the farmer’s market will take place every Thursday in Kerr Park throughout the rest of the summer. I highly suggest checking it out sometime!
