As the weather turns to warm and sunny the crowds are increasing downtown and the festivities are growing. The streets are busy with individuals enjoying events at the Public Library, Parson Thorne Mansion, the Farmer’s Market and Fur-Baby Boutique.

The Milford Public Library held their final $5-a-Bag Book Sale Saturday, June 4 with a Strawberry Social that gave away free strawberries and ice cream. The money from the sale will be used to support programs for the local library. The Friends of the Library, a volunteer organization, has donated $75,000 to the new edition of the library through their fundraisers to date.

The Antiques Market at the Parson Thorne Mansion continued as vendors sold antiques and vintage collections featuring period, country and primitive furniture and decorative items, oriental rugs, jewelry, coins, silverware, glass, linens, books and Delaware collectibles. The Antique Market will start again on Saturday, September 24 from 9 am to 3 pm. General Admission will be $1.00 per person.

The Farmer’s Market enjoyed another successful day next to the Mispillion River on Walnut Street on June 4. The market will run each Saturday until October 29, 2011 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The location of the market is 7 South Walnut Street, next to Bikes Etc., and includes vendors selling fresh vegetables, baked goods, homemade jewelry, arts and flowers. Those wishing to apply to be a vendor should contact Jim Cooper at 302-398-8188 to receive an application with detailed information.

Fur-Baby Boutique is hosting monthly adoption, foster and vaccination events next to the store located on 8 S. Walnut Street. This week Purr-Fect Haven Cat Rescue held a cat adoption for several local cats who needed a new home. Next Saturday, Purr-Fect Cat Rescue will be returning with new cats up for adoption.

Be sure to take advantage of downtown Milford and see all the excitement on Saturdays. Whether you like to shop, listen to live entertainment or enjoy walking the banks of the Mispillion River, Milford is the place to be on Saturdays.
