Who is Penny in Stardew Valley?

Penny’s a villager in Pelican Town residing in a small trailer located east of the town’s center and west of the river. She’s an obedient daughter who does her chores despite having a poorly lit room. Aside from being responsible, she also seems intelligent since she likes reading books from the local library. 

Moreover, Penny has a good side hustle, including tutoring Vincent and Jas in the town’s library. 

Penny’s Family and other Relationships

Penny is Pam’s daughter, and they seem to have a good relationship despite her mom’s fondness for alcohol. Aside from her familial relationships, she’s also good friends with Maru and Sam. And interestingly, if you neither ask Sam nor Penny at the Flower Dance Festival, they’d dance with each other instead.

Heart Events

A player's number of friendship hearts with Penny in Stardew Valley.
See? We’re on eight hearts!

Upon getting enough Friendship Hearts with Penny, you eventually learn about her story in Stardew Valley. You’d get to evaluate better if she’s a worthy spouse or not. Here are some events you should look forward to seeing with this NPC:

No. of HeartsEvents
2Entering the town on a Sunny day in the time between 9 AM to 12 PM; you’ll find George trying to reach something from the mailbox. Penny comes to his rescue and helps him out, but he eventually upsets and scolds her.

She sees you and asks if you are observing them. You may answer this in three ways:

• Admit that you saw everything and tell her she did a good job (+50 points). 
• Tell her she should’ve asked first if George needed help before interfering (-50 points).
• Deny what you saw. 

Penny responds to each comment you give differently. On the first one, she’ll thank you but also say that she’s unhappy since it made the old man upset. While the latter response would make her apologize to George. Lastly, she’d simply say, “I see.”

However, in the end, George would still apologizes to her. After George leaves the cutscene, Penny says it must be difficult to grow old. Your response won’t positively or negatively affect your relationship with her.

Say you’d rather not think about this matter. 
Response: She sort of agrees and affirms you can’t stress out over unchangeable things.

Tell her that it’s just a different perspective in life.
Response: agrees with you and asks why should you stress out over something unchangeable. 

Affirm that it’s the reason why we should give respect to older people.
Response: she agrees with you and adds that we should treat them the way how you wanted to be treated someday.

Bluntly tell her that you’d rather die young.
Response: she’ll say it was a hideous thing to say since life’s precious.
4If you enter the trailer anytime as long as she’s home and it’s open, you’ll find Penny complaining about the place being messy. You’ll offer to help her clean up the place. But upon doing so, Pam enters their home and scolds her daughter for letting someone else clean their place.

Pam also asks you to leave so that they could speak privately. While on the next day, she’ll send you an apology letter regarding the incident.
6Going inside their home when Penny’s present results in another cutscene of her telling you she made a new recipe. 

• She’ll ask you to try it out and you may respond with these three lines:
• Lie and tell her it’s delicious (+50 pts).
• Ask if you may get the rest for taking out (-50 pts).
• Tell her it’s unique and ask why it has a rubbery touch (no effect). 

Your first response delights her to the point that she names the dish after you, “Chili de <name>.” While the second and third responses make her disheartened since her recipe was a fail.

Whichever response you choose, your energy would still increase by 165 since she’ll ask you out for a movie.
8When you enter the Cindersap Forest between 9 AM to 4 PM, you’ll find Penny with the kids conducting a field trip. She’ll ask you if you want to speak about your experience of living in the countryside. 

Here are some responses you may choose from:
• Say you’d love to (+50 points).
• Just simply say “sure” (no effect).
• Tell her you don’t like kids (-1500 points).

The first and second responses result in her saying that she’ll call the kids over. While the latter shows a bit of her uneasiness which eventually ends the scene.

Anyhow, if you choose the first two options, Penny asks you if you’d like to be a parent. You may pick any of these dialogues:  

• Say you haven’t thought of it (no effect). 
Response: she understands since you’re currently busy with other things.

• Tell her that you want to have a big family (+20 points).
Response: she also wants that and tells you she’s glad that you feel that way.

• Say you suppose so since it’s a natural desire (+20 points).
Response: She agrees with you that caring for someone innocent and helpless makes sense.

• Speak your assumptions of probably not being a good parent (+10 points).
Response: She thinks you’ll make a good parent.

• Say no since you find the world crowded already.
Response: she thinks if everyone sees it this way, humans will die out.

• Tell her no since you don’t like being stuck with a family (-10 points).
Response: she tells you that it was a sad perspective, but she understands.
10Penny sends you a letter with a message saying to meet her at the spa’s pool area between 7:00 PM to midnight. Upon reaching the site, she asks if you know why she invited you. You may answer with any of these lines:

• Tell her there’s something she wants to tell you.
Response: you’re right.

• Say you have no idea.
Response: She’d say, “really?” followed by her assumption of noticing why she invited you.

• Affirm that she wants to see you in a bathing suit.
Response: she says, “No!”

After this dialogue, she then confesses her feelings for you. If you admit that you feel the same way about her, she’d say that she had her speculations but wasn’t sure about it. 

Moreover, if you’re a male player, her dialogue gets followed by her saying she’ll never forget this night. While you’re a female player, she’ll comment you look beautiful tonight. The cutscene ends with the two of you kissing.

However, she’d cry and end the scene if you say you don’t feel the same way.
Group 10-HeartsThis event reveals that you’re dating all bachelors or bachelorettes. You can evade this by bringing a Rabbit’s Foot when you enter Haley/Emily’s house (for Bachelorettes) or the Saloon (for Bachelors).

Not having this item results in giving you the cold shoulder for a week and refusing your gifts since you dated all of them. While if you managed to dodge this, you’ll hear about Marnie and Mayor Lewis’ relationship or have a friendly game of pool at the Saloon.
14She’ll ask you how your day went if you enter the farmhouse around 3 PM to 7 PM. You may say:

• “It was fine.” 
Response: she’d ask if it was just an ordinary day and also tell you she has a new recipe in the oven.

• “Not good.”
Response: she apologizes for your bad day and tells you she’ll do her best to make you feel better.

•“It was fantastic!”
Response: she tells you it was great that you enjoyed your work.

Later, Penny proceeds to tell you that she’d like to redecorate the room. She’ll also ask what style you prefer. Here are the choices you have:

• Forest and Moon: Peaceful Blue Theme
• Strawberry Home
• Pirate Theme

She tells you that she won’t touch your chest but would ask you to move your things out. You may also disagree with this depending on your preferences. 

Moreover, this gets done after three days. The renovation may depend on the farmhouse upgrade that you currently have.


A player in Penny's space in Stardew Valley.
Her interest in books is quite amazing.

Despite marrying Penny, she’d still keep her job at the Museum every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. She’ll also add a part of her room to your farmhouse like other candidates. While you’ll also find a small garden behind the house, this is her special place where she occasionally reads a book. 

She also occasionally gives you items depending on her schedule of the weather. Here are some things she may provide you:

On Rainy MorningsOn Mornings when She Stays at HomeOn Rainy Nights
Large MilkOmeletSalmon Dinner
EggsHashbrownsCrispy Bass
Mixed SeedsPancakesFried Eel
GeodeCarp Surprise
Vegetable Medley


Aside from making random requests at the “Help Wanted” board, Penny doesn’t partake in other quests. You’ll still receive 3x the price of her requested item’s base selling price and 150 Friendship Points. Nonetheless, this isn’t a preferred way to get hearts with her.


Is Penny Worth Marrying in Stardew Valley?

Personality-wise, yes; but when it comes to her offered gifts, no. She gives quite basic items that you can prepare in your kitchen. Nonetheless, if you really like her personality and you think her gifts are handy, then perhaps, she’s worth marrying in Stardew Valley.
