It’s funny, my father used to take me and my little sister to Pennings when we were children, primarily to see their goats and other animals, and to get a scoop of ice cream. It was always a low-key place without much traffic, but it was special for us, generally coupled with a trip to Och’s Orchard.
In the last 10+ years, Penning’s Market has become immensely popular. Go there now and expect to be greeted by a parking attendant! They have added a beer garden, a market with various produce, live music, etc. Now, whenever I make a trip with my wife, we are stunned with the sheer number of people present. This is not to say it is a bad thing! I am very happy that Pennings is booming. Their wooden furniture that they sell outside is gorgeous (swing sets, rocking chairs, picnic tables, etc.). They also happen to sell a lot of plants, flowers, seeds, and carry a good amount of organic options, including organic top soil.
