"Dedicated to promoting the historic preservation and economic development of the Brandywine Village" Eleventh Edition

Around the Village...

The opening days of the inaugural Village Market have been a great success. Many neighbors meet over "T-Rex" sandwiches from Wildwich food truck, while drinking a beverage from our Twin Lakes brewery beer garden.

"Farm to Table" takes on a different meaning here in Wilmington, for you can pick up your fresh produce for the week from Conscious Connections, Eric Robinson Community garden and Kingswood Community Center. They are a coalition of 3 community gardens on the east side who are working together to bring healthy foods to the community and "food deserts". They accept WIC in addition to cash, making fresh food available to all households.

Visit, enjoy, grocery shop and get a head start on gift giving season by purchasing from local vendors, all while listening to the sounds of Jazz, Bluegrass, or dance tunes from our DJ. Come out to the next market on July 11th, and bring some friends!

Spotlight On...


A venture that has grown...pun intended. Bright Spot Urban Farm empowers youth aging out of the foster care system by teaching gardening and business skills. Knowing how to grow your own food is a skill that empowers for a lifetime, and we can help, as well as benefit, buy purchasing produce and flowers from them at the Village Market. Grown right here in Wilmington, your summer salad can come from just a few blocks away! Please view their website to learn more.
