Buy fresh buy local—all year round at KSQ.
We hope this email finds you and your loved ones healthy at home right now.

We are grateful that farmers markets continue to be considered essential and life-sustaining services in PA. Here's a short article to read here . (See Chester County Health Department for more info, as well as PA state info here .)

Our farms and food producers are adapting their businesses and following additional safety protocols in order to continue serving our community in the most responsible ways possible. We appreciate your patience and support as we evolve and work together to make nourishing local foods available to you.

Obviously, we can not operate the market in the traditional way at this critical time. So, for this Friday 3/27, we have decided to pare down and offer the "market" through a PREORDER / PREPAY system only. We hope to be able to add more vendors in this format if it at all possible in the weeks to come.

Please read through all of the information below if you wish to place orders for pickup. Any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to the Market Manager by replying to this email.

Thank you, and be well.
PREORDER INSTRUCTIONS:
Only the regular vendors listed below these instructions are offering pickup for PREORDERS in Kennett Square THIS FRIDAY 3/27 .

  • Place your preorders with each vendor as indicated below.
  • Note order deadlines for each vendor!
  • There will be no extra to purchase on site—you MUST pre-order!
  • All orders must be prepaid—no payment will be accepted on site in order to eliminate that point of contact.

PICKUP INSTRUCTIONS:
Please help us in making this work as smoothly as possible by cooperating with the timeframes and instructions. This will allow us to maintain safe distance while getting everyone in and out quickly.

TIMEFRAME:
  • Does your last name start with A–M? >> Pickup from 3–4pm.
  • Does your last name start with N–Z? >> Pickup from 4–5pm.
  • Individual vendors may provide customers with more detailed time instructions as necessary, so watch for emails from them.

LOCATION:
  • Pickup location is different than our normal market space, as this is not a normal market day—it is simply a pickup for pre-orders only.
  • Pickup location is the parking lot just behind the Kennett Library (GPS: 108 Church Alley, Kennett Square, PA 19348)

WHEN YOU ARRIVE:
  • Please park anywhere in the lower section of the lot or walk down from parking on State St (maintaining 6' from others along the way!)
  • The vendor area will be closed off to limit the number of customers at once, and we will instruct you on when to enter in order to manage safe distancing.
  • If there is a line to enter, please be patient and keep 6' between each other (we will provide queues to help.)

ACTUAL PICKUP:
  • Approach the vendor table & provide your name from the distance marked.
  • The vendor will grab your pre-bagged order, and place it on the table.
  • Allow them a moment to back up.
