June Food News in the Brandywine Valley

Written by County Lines Magazine

A few of our favorite things to share this month about local food and drink

Best Bennies

A hearty congrats to West Chester’s Market Street Grill, which Yelp declared the “Top Eggs Benedict” in Pennsylvania. The best Benny in each state was determined by Yelp reviews — Market Street Grill is rated 4.5 stars with nearly 300 reviews. They have six different types of eggs Benedict, including classic, “The Lew” with marinated flank steak and asparagus, and “The Mainline” with sliced avocado on cornbread. Be sure to order some next time you go! 6 W. Market St., West Chester.

State Street Eats

Just in time for the outdoor dining season, there’s a new restaurant in downtown Kennett Square. Sweet Amelia’s — named after owners Karessa and Zack Hathaway’s young daughter — is an upscale, casual eatery offering New American sharable plates and drinks. Menu highlights include spring lamb rack with red lentil hummus, carrot triangoli, chuck eye steak and tandoori-spiced tofu with potato vindaloo. 102 State St., Kennett Square.

New Beginnings

Get farm-fresh produce from FarmerJawn Agriculture, taking over after beloved Pete’s Produce closed last year. Founder Christa Barfield has leased 123 acres of land from the Westtown School with a mission to increase access to organic food for marginalized communities. Barfield farms half the land to stock the 3,000-square-foot farm market on Street Road. The remainder will become a farming incubator, comprised of small cooperative farms run by Black farmers. 1225 E. Street Rd., West Chester.

Main Line Market

The minds behind online marketplace Culinary Harvest have a new venture. The Berwyn Farmers Market is open Sundays, 10 to 1, at Bronze Plaza (in front of Handel’s Ice Cream) through October. The open-air market hosts over two dozen rotating food producers and artisans each week, including Stonyrun Farms, Manatawny Still Works and Bamba Soap, as well as live music and other events. 511 Old Lancaster Rd., Berwyn.

Egg-cellent Rolls

Need something unique to serve at your next gathering? Madi’s on a Roll storefront opened in Exton, serving a variety of specialty egg rolls. Owner Madi McShane’s twist on the Chinese restaurant staple has garnered many fans at local farmers markets. The new store offers 15 to 20 varieties of frozen egg rolls, both savory and sweet. Popular flavors include cheesesteak, Buffalo chicken, apple pie and French toast. 290 E. Lincoln Hwy., Exton.
