The Franklin Flea Summer Market is happening this Saturday, August 16th, and it’ll be full of vintage pieces, music, and food. Oh so much food. In fact, this month’s event is the largest one yet, when it comes to the food.
We just got the lineup of the 13 vendors that will be satisfying your cravings and we’re not sure where to start. Maybe with the Watermelon-Basil Lemonade? Or the Pork Tacos with Pineapple Salsa? Perhaps the S’mores Cups and Chocolate Cupcakes with Strawberry Cheesecake baked in the center? The list goes on, so be sure to stop by between 10am – 5pm and enjoy all of the market’s offerings.
Franklin Flea Market will be located at the McCall Schoolyard in Society Hill. (325 S. 7th Street between Spruce and Pine Streets).
Just in time for the cold weather, word came down today that Luke’s Lobster is launching a winter menu. Or a menu augmentation, really. There’s just two new dishes going up on the board, but they’re good ones.
Starting today, the crew behind the counter will be adding lobster grilled cheese sandwiches made with gruyere cheese, buttery white bread and, of course, big hunks of lobster. And for their second trick, they’ll be dishing out lobster mac and cheese. I’ll let them describe it for you…
“For Luke’s mac ‘n’ cheese, the team turned to Hurricane’s Soup in Greene, Maine—the same folks who
create their award-winning chowders and bisques. Hurricane’s is a small company owned by Phil Wilbur [who has] collaborated with the Luke’s team to create a classic, creamy macaroni and cheese with cheddar from Pineland Farms in Maine to accompany the steamed lobster you’ve come to know and love. The Luke’s crew gently hand mixes lobster into each order of mac ‘n cheese
so that it stays fresh and perfectly cooked.”
Sounds like a pretty good lunch, doesn't it? And to wash it down, Luke's is also offering hot apple cider, along with their full regular menu.

Okay, so remember how excited we were when we heard the news that Luke’s Lobster was coming to town?
And remember how happy I was when I finally got to go there and taste a lobster roll done right (for the first time in longer than I care to recall)?
Well here's the only thing that could possibly make things even better: I just got word today that Luke's Lobster is going to start delivery service.
