Summer 2021 – where did you go?!! Our closing Market this season started with a cool, pleasant cloud cover that busted into a brilliant, perfect beach day!
The relentless humidity refused to lift, but thankfully the scorching sun hid behind clouds all morning. A brief mist of rain fell at one point – just a sweet summer kiss!
The Market was bookended Sunday with rain to kick off things, then a deluge that hit with a vengeance to bring an abrupt, early close.
After a week of August heat – air that was barely breathable – Mother Nature took pity and gifted a day where clouds gave way to reveal a proper summer sun without malice.
We had record-shattering attendance again with 2,403 shoppers! That is almost 15 times the population of Bethany Beach in 1960! Bennett Orchards had a banner day with peaches galore; and yes, nectarines have arrived! This splendiferous fruit will be back again next...
We had a bit of rain early on, but no one melted
Peaches rule right now! And Bennett Orchards has boat loads at the Market!
Once again record breaking numbers of shoppers visited our Sunday Market.
In case there was any doubt, we are now smack dab in the Summer Swing!!
Spirits soared this beautiful summer day! Just in time for the 4th of July, Bennett Orchards is picking peaches!
