On Friday August 9, 2019 from 5-8PM, the Bellefonte Farmer’s Market held at the Bellevue Community Center in Wilmington, De will host their “Dog Days of Summer” market. Operating 2nd Fridays June-September, the Bellefonte Farmer’s Market has become a neighborhood favorite since redesigning in 2017 attracting folks from all around the Greater Brandywine Hundred area. Market manager Elisa King believes “people want something in the community they can look forward to and we have found that folks enjoy a space where they not only shop but hang out, eat, and have a great time”.
At all the Bellefonte Farmer’s Markets, you will find local, sustainably grown fresh produce for sale, delicious meal options from several different food trucks including gluten free and vegan, free kids’ activities, live music, local shopping from food to arts and crafts, information from various community groups, and craft brews for sale from Wilmington Brew Works.
The August 9 market is during National Farmers’ Market Week. To celebrate, Bellefonte Farmer’s Market will have giveaways and a raffle basket of goodies from the local vendors. Each patron will receive 1 free ticket for the raffle. Folks will also have the pleasure of listening to a performance from Wilmington’s original hip-hop artist Zel. In addition, the “Dog Days of Summer” market will have guest Faithful Friends Animal Society providing information on adoptable pets and have a few greeting folks as well. In addition, you will find local producers of pet treats for our furry friends.
