"Kennett Square is growing..." Philadelphia Local Custom Tip by traveltom

Philadelphia Local Customs: 60 reviews and 65 photos

Kennett Square is growing rapidly, but it's recent history has given Kennett Square the culture you see today. All the Mushroom farms are owned by Italians, and all the mushroom pickers are mostly Mexian or Puerto Rican, but mostly Mexican. Just walk through Kennett for about an hour and learn some spanish or talk to an elderly Italian widow. It's an experience to remember!!!
