I missed all the political fanfare early this morning, but I did make it to the 25th anniversary of the West Chester Growers Market.
State Senator Andy Dinniman and Chester County Commissioners Michele Kichline and Terrence Farrell were there at the opening of today’s market to celebrate with everyone and present citations and proclamations.
But where oh where were the officials of West Chester Borough? Borough Council? I mean it is NO SECRET they have been discussing the lot on the corner of Chestnut and Church Streets again right? And what developer and hotel owner want in on whatever is discussed, hmmm? Oh the irony that they just discussed this again, what? This past week?
And no one from the Borough could come to the West Chester Growers Market in an official capacity to celebrate their 25th anniversary? The County and State felt they should be there, so why not the Borough?
Oh and my opinions are my own, by the way. And sadly I think West Chester Borough needs to appreciate the organizations which bring people into the Borough weekly for 25 years, don’t you? The West Chester Growers Market brings people and farms and small food producers together. In a world filled with ugliness, this is something genuine and nice.
Today the market was bustling in spite of the crazy heat. And the vendors were nice enough to have lots and lots of water on hand for customers. And ice cream!! And balloons and face painting for kids!
I love the West Chester Growers Market and it is pretty much the only one I patronize at this point since East Goshen seems to have given up on their farmers market which I think is a huge mistake since they have one of the most awesome locations.
The photos I took today were my own. I am not compensated in any way for posting about the market. I post about the West Chester Growers Market because I love it and think it’s fabulous.
And if West Chester Borough Council gets their knickers in a twist because I do not feel in my opinion that they appreciate the market in all it’s fabulousness, tough noogies and am I wrong?
HAPPY 25TH ANNIVERSARY WEST CHESTER GROWERS MARKET!!
WE LOVE YOU IN CHESTER COUNTY!!
