New Garden Growers Market Opening Day


This year marks the 13th year of operation for the New Garden Growers Market - Avondale’s very own outdoor community farmers’ market.

Opening day is set for Saturday, May 6th and the market will be open every Saturday through November 18th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The market is conveniently located in the parking lot of the New Garden Township Maintenance Garage right off of Route 41, just three miles north of Hockessin, DE, 3 miles west of Kennett Square, PA and 1 mile south of Avondale, PA.

With a total of twenty full-time farmers and vendors, there is never a shortage of fresh fruits and vegetables. Along with produce, the market offers naturally-raised meats, eggs, cheeses, mushrooms, plants and fresh-cut flowers. Customers can also find gourmet prepared foods, a variety of fresh baked goods, natural dog treats, local honey, jams & jellies, and handmade crafts and soaps throughout the season.

On opening day there will be live music, samplings and raffles of local goods.

While May is early in growing the season, customers can expect to find asparagus, rhubarb, lettuce of all kinds, spinach, kale, radishes, arugula and spring onions. By mid-May, strawberries and peas will be available and new fruits and vegetables will appear each week. Stop by the market information table for ideas on how to use the beautiful and delicious local offerings.

Special events for adults and children are planned throughout the season. These events are free and a great way to connect with your farmers, producers and fellow community members. Check the market’s website and Facebook page for more information and details on these fun events.

The New Garden Growers Market offers something for everyone. In addition to selling produce and local goods, the market is a space for members of the community to gather each week. Bring your family and be part of the fun.
