07/09/2014 10:03PM, Published by ACL, Categories: In Print



The Market at Liberty Place will be celebrating its first anniversary this weekend. Festivities begin on July 11, with two live musical acts -- a Frank Sinatra-style performer from 5 to 7:30 p.m., followed by Kennett Square’s own Born Sisters from 7:30 to 9 p.m. 

The Born Sisters are Kristen and Kara Zach, country/pop duo who write and perform their own songs. 

Saturday’s events include a history lesson at 11 a.m. with Captain Liberty sharing the history of the Liberty Ship, which is the material that the Liberty Place building is made out of. A children’s story time featuring “One Tooth Tim & Pirate Jim” by local author and Kennett Square resident Peter Doerfler takes place at 1 and 1:30 p.m. Sidewalk art and bubbles will be available outside (weather permitting) from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday evening will be capped by a performance by the R&B band Goodfoot, with Leon Spencer as the lead vocalist. 

On Sunday, Captain Liberty will be back for another history talk at 11 a.m. Other activities include a book signing by children’s author John-Ruben Aranton Jr., from noon to 2 p.m. Aranton wrote “What Treat Can Ruben Eat,” a book about children’s food allergies. A trivia contest, which is free to enter, will take place at 2 p.m. Prizes will be awarded to winners. Temporary tattoos and balloons will be available all weekend. 

The market will also have a guest vendor, Giggybites, with gourmet dog treats for the entire weekend.

Located at 148 West State St. in downtown Kennett Square, The Market at Liberty Place is home to a mix of merchants selling  foods, wine, produce, and other retail goods. Located inside are Nourish Juice Bar & Café, Yo’R So Sweet (creperie), State St Pizza & Grill, Paradocx Vineyard, Terra Foods (organic grocer), George & Sons Seafood, & Punk’d Pineapple (soft-serve ice cream).
