The Pantry...A Brand New Venture

On Saturday afternoon my husband and I visited a Farmer's Market in NewCastle, Delaware. Our friends have opened a stand called "The Pantry", in a newly constructed section of the market. There are many stands that have opened in this section of the market. When we arrived at "The Pantry", we discovered several of the family members working at the stand. The beautifully decorated pantry looks similar to an old country farmhouse kitchen.

The yellow painted walls and the old wooden windows helped add to the farmhouse theme.

This dear friend and her husband are the originators and owners of "The Pantry". Their creativity, their warm, caring personalities and their "get alot done" work ethic , is what is making this new venture so successful.

This old kitchen cupboard adds to the feel of a grandma's pantry.
Our friend was busy at work, putting the finishing touches on this "caramel, chocolate, apple with nuts. Oh delicious it looked sitting on the silver tray.

As you can see...there are only two apples left to buy.

The candy counter was perfectly organized and all the scrumptious looking chocolates were lined on the shelves.

Shelves containing an endless display of herbs, seasonings, granolas, dried soups, raisins, nuts, sunflower seeds...the list goes on and on, were lined from the floor up.

Clear plastic containers holding endless amounts of colors, flavors and types of candy, were on the shelves in the center section of the store. Gummy bears, gummy hearts, gummy many choices, and so little time.

One of their adorable daughters who just happened to be available for a picture.

In the center of "The Pantry" was a large wooden cart decorated in red and white and hearts. Perfect place to display all of the Valentine's Day candy assortment.

Another wall of shelves with more assortment of pantry staples. Everything one could need to stock one's kitchen pantry at home. We had an enjoyable visit, including deliciously made sandwiches for lunch and samples of freshly squeezed orange juice that convinced us to not leave without buying some to take along home. If you are ever looking for an fascinating afternoon event, you might want to visit.

That looks like a great place to visit! I wish your friends much success in their new venture.

Is Newcastle, Delaware near Lancaster County, Pennsylvania? I'm just wondering...since the sign says 'The Pantry...of Lancaster County'.
