I’m referring of course to the New Hope Farmers’ Market which has moved back to its previous location at the New Hope-Solebury High School campus grounds.
“It is wonderful to be back,” says Susan Pierson, market manager. It’s been a bumpy season for so many reasons. The market had opened the season at [...]
Being in the business, as it were, I keep my nose in the air, always sniffing for tidbits about area restaurants – specials, openings, moves, etc. From time to time, I’ll share them with you. Why should I have all the fun?
The Yardley Inn is open for business! The Inn survived Hurricane [...]
Ah, Irene. You are striking fear in the hearts of many. Let’s pray you’re not as nasty as they are making you out to be.
It would be an understatement to say this weekend is overshadowed by Hurricane Irene. First priority is battening down the hatches, putting anything away that might be a projectile in [...]
As a member of the Anchor Run Farm CSA (community supported agriculture), we receive weekly updates from our farmers, Dana Hunting and Derek McGeehan. I always enjoy their emails.

I know you’ve all been waiting with bated breath for the winners of the Zucchini Races at the Lower Makefield Farmers’ Market this past Thursday, August 11, 2011. The pictures say it all.
