I decided several years ago that Bucks County folks needed to know where to go to get good meat—locally. Not from a supermarket, but from some of the great butchers and farms right here. So here is a post on where you can find locally raised, locally butchered good meat. Click on the […]
We all wish for a healthier New Year—and maybe a slimmer waist. It doesn’t help that the holiday season is typically filled with baked goods and champagne toasts.
But it’s nice to start the new year with a clean slate, especially when it comes to eating. Good news is, you don’t have to go far […]
I’m usually one of those people that gets their holiday shopping done early. This year, instead of sitting back and taking it easy, I’m scrambling trying to find the perfect gift for “so-and-so’s aunt,” mom and dad, grandparents…
That’s why I opt for local, hand-crafted gifts, food baskets, or handmade chocolates and farm-fresh cheese. The […]
This week’s food photo of the week goes to Manoff Market Gardens in New Hope, PA. Manoff Market Gardens has plenty of seasonal produce available, along with jams, butters, gift baskets, apple cider, and other goodies to get you ready for wintertime. Check out their Facebook page here.
It’s happening. Winter is coming. I heard it on the news this morning, they say get ready for colder mornings and temperatures dropping below 40 degrees. We must enjoy the brisk weekends while we still can! This weekend, check out new wine from the Bucks County Wine Trail, and stop by a few local holiday […]
Happy November! This exceptionally warm weather makes it feel more like April than November, but it does make for better weekend plans. Take advantage of the sunny, warm afternoons this weekend by perusing your area farmers markets. They’ll have locally grown produce like squash, cabbage, greens, onions, potatoes, broccoli, radishes and apples.
Now that it’s November, it’s […]
By guest blogger Debra Wallace,
Roaming the aisles of the Newtown Pennsylvania Dutch Farmer’s Market is my definition of wall-to-wall comfort food.
Like many people, I used to just dart in one entrance, head for my favorite vendors and dart out. So I started exploring the market looking for, and easily discovering, so many hidden treasures.
This warm October weather is certainly unusual, but when you live on the East Coast, you expect Mother Nature to abide by her own rules. Remember the one year it snowed near the week of Halloween?
Despite the wonky temperatures we have experienced in 2016, the harvest season for local wineries has been great. Many vineyards […]
The best part about living in Bucks County (or Pennsylvania in general) is seeing the season change right before your eyes. Pumpkins appear in the patches, farmers markets are still bursting with fresh produce, and you can’t drive anywhere without seeing those colorful fall trees.
Another great part about Bucks County in the fall is […]
What a beautiful day! Get a head start on your weekend because there are things to do and eat in Bucks County from Thursday until Sunday. Drink beer on historic grounds in Lansdale, check out a chef demo from one of Bucks County’s favorite BYOBs, and stop by the grand opening of a new and […]
With the mini heat wave we’re about to endure, you would almost think it’s the middle of July again. The weather may have you fooled, and so will this weekend of foodie events. It’s a nice mix of autumn festivals, end-of-summer BBQs, and a few ways to celebrate the fall harvest.
Welcome September! It’s Labor Day weekend, which means Bucks County is jam-packed with things to do. The weather should be clear for most of the weekend, so catch the season’s last fireworks, head to the farmers market for fresh produce, or pick-your-own grapes at a local winery.
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 […]
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 […]
