Spring is in the air….And that means… The Downtown Farmers Market Grand Opening May 17th
The market begins Wednesday May 3rd and May 10th from 10 am – 2 pm
and on Wednesday May 17th at 12:00 PM, Downtown Visions celebrates the Grand Opening of the Downtown Farmer’s Market at Rodney Square sponsored by Chase Card Services.
Now in its 14th year the 2017 season of the Downtown Farmers Market at Rodney Square operates every Wednesday, rain or shine, through October 25th from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM, except for June 21st for the Jazz Fest. Join us every Wednesday, in beautiful Rodney Square, between 10th & 11th Streets and Market & King Streets. The Square comes to life each Wednesday beneath the statue of Caesar Rodney, for whom the park is dedicated. The Farmers Market offers an array of the freshest local produce, plants, herbs and cut flowers, a large assortment of beautiful handmade items, including arts and crafts, unique jewelry and delicious home baked goods. Stroll the Square and then relax under an umbrella at one the many café tables. The food truck craze continues with returning favorites like Kapow Food Truck, Koi On The Go and I Don’t Give A Fork. We are also looking forward to our new vendors including River Rock Kitchen and Mrs. Robino’s. Enjoy a delicious breakfast or lunch while listening to a variety of free live entertainment.
This market is another example of our commitment to assisting small businesses, entrepreneurs and startups as well as many community organizations with the goal of a more vital, vibrant downtown for all. The market has grown each year to become the go to place for 1,000’s citizens and Downtown workers every Wednesday. Much of what is sold at the market is grown by small family owned farms in Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Come out and enjoy all Downtown Wilmington has to offer!
