Learn more about Stardew Valley's Penny including what she likes, her location, and how to win her over with this handy guide

Stardew Valley Penny over a nightmarket scene

In Stardew Valley, Penny is a sweet, shy villager who adores a good book. She lives in a little trailer by the river with her mum, Pam, and can often be found doing chores there, or out tutoring children in the museum. Her main ambition in life is to settle down and raise a family, and she is one of the twelve characters available to marry.

If you’re a fan of this studious beauty, then you’ve come to the right place. Our Stardew Valley Penny guide will tip you off about all of her heart events and the best gifts to give her, so you can earn her friendship, or even her hand in marriage. You can give Penny up to two gifts per week, plus an additional one on her birthday (Fall 2), so try and stick to her loved items if you want to win her over. We’ve also included Penny’s schedule, so you can find her at all times.

If you enjoy this article and want to find out more about the other villagers, we also have handy Stardew Valley Leah, Stardew Valley Haley, and Stardew Valley Emily guides, along with many more. Or if you want a more general guide to help you on your journey, we have Stardew Valley fish and Stardew Valley co-op guides too.

Group ten heart event

Under the correct conditions, reaching ten hearts with Penny will also contribute to the ten heart group event. In order to achieve this, you must:

  • Be unmarried
  • Give a bouquet to all available bachelorettes
  • Raise your friendship level with each bachelorette to ten hearts
  • Have viewed each of the other bachelorette’s ten heart event cutscene

You can find out more about finishing Penny’s ten heart event in our Stardew Valley Haley guide. This event will only happen once per save file, and will not occur if you are married, or have given any of the bachelorettes a wilted bouquet or mermaid’s pendant.

Fourteen hearts
