From the monthly archives: August 2016

I can’t help but feel that September is reminiscent of “back-to-school.” Perhaps it’s all the kids suddenly in Staples or the yellow buses that seem to have come out of hibernation — either way, it’s clear that time of year has returned.

This week, there are a few great foodie events sprinkled throughout Bucks County. They’re guaranteed to […]

Lunch in Bucks

On August 28, 2016 By

This post was updated 8/28/2016

I’m old-fashioned. I like to go out for lunch and get a really good chicken salad sandwich with a cup of coffee. Do you know the kind of place I’m thinking of? Kind of like a luncheonette or diner, but it doesn’t have to be. I want to start a list […]

Hard to believe but August is coming to a close — and with it summer. So make the most of it and this weekend, eat breakfast with your local firefighters, sample food truck cuisine with Middle Eastern flavors, and purchase all the delicious summer produce that’s still available!

Shopping local is one way you can give back to the community and support your area’s farmers. You might know that agriculture is Pennsylvania’s largest industry, but did you know that there are more than 1,000 farm markets and community farmers’ markets in the state? You’ll find Pennsylvania produce year-round, but some of the tastiest fruits and vegetables flourish in […]

When I picture the end of August, I think of cool breezes, late night BBQs, those final trips to the beach, and a nice, crisp glass of wine. There’s nothing like sitting outside with a bottle of white wine or a refreshing rosé, paired perfectly with good company (like your furry friends).

Thankfully, we live near […]

Before the summer is over, you’ve got to have your own BBQ night. Grab some local beef (or produce if meat’s not your thing) and grill the night away.

Hosting a BBQ night can be time-consuming though, depending on how many people you need to cook for, so it might be fun to have someone else […]

We think we’ve done a pretty good job at hyping up all the end-of-summer produce, and we don’t plan on stopping! This week’s farmers market report covers what’s new as well as some good tips on tomatoes—like how to cook and freeze them. As for what is available, just about everything you can grow in Bucks County […]

Happy Monday! Let’s hope that the heat wave ends soon so that we can step outside without instantly being drenched in sweat.

They say one way to beat the heat is to continuously drink water. I think that’s boring, so I spike my water with fresh fruit and herbs. Pick up some peaches, berries or […]

Have you ever liked the taste of something so much, you just couldn’t get enough of it? That’s been me with sweet summer peaches. One week I think I had one every day for breakfast! This weekend is packed with peaches including two Bucks County peach festivals.

We are dog lovers, plain and simple. Big dogs, small dogs, sweet dogs and even yappy dogs. But our previous two dogs—Cody and Canta—weren’t behaviorally suited to going out in public (Cody was very abused in his former life and Canta just couldn’t be bothered).

But in March we got a very […]

Here we are in the second week of August already, and the summer heat has given us a bountiful harvest of corn, berries, peaches, cantaloupes, and other late-summer produce. As always, take time to check out your farmers markets to pick up your favorite fruits, veggies and plants before it’s too late. This week, get your hands on […]

Mid 80s and high 70s, with not a cloud in the sky? This August weather is perfect. The only way to truly enjoy it is to get out this weekend and relax with a cold brew or a plate filled with food truck goodies. Order some BBQ, watch local fireworks, and soak up these sweet summer […]

Sorry to interrupt your day but this message is brief: You can now pick your own watermelons.

You can also buy local, fresh watermelon at certain farmers markets in the area, but at Peace Valley Winery, you can pick-your watermelons as the fields open today, August 3 at 10 am. The price is […]
