‘Food Fridays’ kick-off

in downtown Pottstown

POTTSTOWN — A new lunch alternative begins Friday in downtown Pottstown as Food Fridays get underway. Several area restaurants will be set up in Smith Family Plaza, 100 E. High St., from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., offering selections from their restaurants.

“The idea of this event was started because we recognized that many throughout the borough often have little time for a long lunch break,” said PDIDA Main Street Manager Sheila Dugan. “Our goal was to allow them a taste of local fare and to help our local restaurants promote their great food in a relaxing, fun atmosphere.”
