Delaware Shakespeare Festival – July 11th – 27th
New and returning events this season!
Every night of the festival, there’s music, entertainment and more before the metaphorical curtain rises on the performance of Hamlet — but not every night features a wine tasting or a picnic competition. For your calendars:
* Janssen’s Market 2nd Annual Picnic Contest: Saturday, July 19. All the world’s a stage, and all our park’s a picnic during our second annual competitive picnicking event, sponsored by Janssen’s Market. The gates of the Delaware Shakespeare Festival will open 15 minutes early for registered picnickers to set up their spread and get ready to rumble. Picnics will be judged on creativity and execution, attractiveness of the picnicking spread and general Shakespearean picnic spirit.
Created through an act of the Delaware Legislature in 1811, the Wilmington and Kennett Turnpike would become one of the most important roads in New Castle County. Linking the city of Wilmington, Delaware, to Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, it would become crucial in the transportation of goods from a growing industrial Wilmington to Philadelphia and the eastern counties of Pennsylvania. Kennett Pike, as it would come to be known, operated as a toll road until it was purchased in 1919 by industrialist Pierre S. du Pont (1870–1954). Du Pont would work over the next year and a half to widen and modernize the highway and eliminate its tolls. When work was completed, he sold the road back to the state for just $1. Kennett Pike has continued to grow through the 20th century, with dozens of private estates gracing its borders. Villages such as Greenville and Centreville have been characterized by their country charm and local businesses, including Shields Lumber & Coal and Buckley’s Tavern.

Leafy greens by Liz Freeman of Free & Abel
Leafy greens are some of the easiest and most beneficial vegetables to incorporate into your daily routine. Densely packed with energy and nutrients, they grow upward to the sky, absorbing the sun’s light while producing oxygen. Members of this royal green family include kale, collard greens, Swiss chard, mustard greens, arugula, dandelion greens, broccoli rabe, watercress, beet greens, bok choy, napa cabbage, green cabbage, spinach and broccoli.
How do greens benefit our bodies? They are very high in calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorous and zinc, and are a powerhouse for vitamins A, C, E and K. They are crammed full of fiber, folic acid, chlorophyll and many other micronutrients and phytochemicals. Greens aid in purifying the blood, strengthening the immune system, improving liver, gall bladder and kidney function, fighting depression, clearing congestion, improving circulation and keeping your skin clear and blemish free.

Robiola Cheese originates from the small town of Arona, in the province of Novara, in the Piedmont area of Northern Italy.
The term 3 Latti is Italian for three milks. This cheese is made from an equal mixture of cow’s milk, sheep’s milk and goat’s milk.
Robiola is a mild cheese perfect blended into polenta or rice for a creamy flavorful side dish. Try it with some apple or pear for a simple, appetizer.
