A new reason to visit Kennett Square

Vintage goods will be sold by The Mid Century Sisters.

The extra excitement in downtown Kennett Square – and the larger crowds – can be attributed to the new Flea and Artisan Market that happens every first Friday of the month.

Held in conjunction with the long-running Farmers Market on the Genesis Walkway, the new market is set up across State Street, and features vintage clothing, housewares, paper products and more made by local artisans and sold by local dealers. The lineup changes each month, so you don't know what you'll find.

On July 6 from 4 to 8 p.m., visitors can stroll the downtown and find booths by a range of artisans in the area of 128 S. State St. There will be live music on the street from 6 to 8 p.m. as well. The lineup includes:

Monarca Fiber Arts – Embroidered goods specializing in unique home decor pieces, kitchen linens, funky accessories and boutique children’s toys

The Mid Century Sisters -- Vintage linens, books and home decor

Christine Shirley -- Handmade apparel and accessories, including tie-dyed bamboo dresses, handmade totes, scarves and more

Art by Lauren Maulhern – Handmade terrariums and paintings

896 Junction -- Antiques, vintage, retro, military, small furniture and collectibles

Rock Painting by Lars -- Dozens of hand-painted riverstones

RLD Books -- Rare and used vintage books

Made by Stephanie -- Handmade cards, signs, necklaces, zip pouches, hand woven items and essential oil mixes.

The series, which began in May, will also continue on Aug. 3. For updated information, visit
