The specialty food market will feature such artisans as Brian and Andrea Polizzi of West Chester, Pennsylvania-based Waffatopia specializing in Liege waffles; Krista Scudlark of Milton, Delaware – based Backyard Jams and Jellies; and Adrienne Gage of Middletown, Delaware-based Gage Family Beekeeping specializing in pure, raw honey harvested locally.

This marketplace of fine crafts and specialty foods is held on Hagley’s upper property in the Soda House, Library, and on the grounds surrounding the buildings. Free shuttle service is available between both buildings.

Visitors can take a break from shopping and enjoy lunch or a snack. The Belin House Organic Café will have food available for purchase at the library building and Soda House.
