Here we are in the summer doldrums. It’s not as intense heat-wise as last month, but it sure ain’t fall yet. And I guess it would be overdone to say, “OMG, is it the end of August already?” although I keep saying it to myself (almost as annoying as “Hot enough for ya?”). At least the weather is lovely – warm but less humid – for the weekend.

But believe it or not apples are already showing up in Bucks County. I got news from Tabora Farms in Chalfont that they now have u-pick apples including Tydeman and MacIntosh, with red and golden delicious to follow in about two weeks. Check out their website or Facebook page for updates. Solebury Orchards reports on their website that Gala apples will be ready for picking around August 28th.

Of course the big news this weekend is the Middletown Grange Fair, in its 62nd year, held on the Middletown Grange grounds in Wrightstown (just north of Newtown). If you’ve never been – and even if you have – go! It’s a lot of fun, full of great exhibits, live, beautiful animals, food and amusements. And the Grange is a great cause to support – keeping farming and livestock a part of Bucks County for hopefully a long time to come. For schedule of events, see their website. I’ll do a post later today or Sunday of some photos. The fair runs through Sunday.

Farmers’ markets are still going strong with just about every vegetable and lovely seasonal fruit you can imagine. For a list of farmers’ markets in Bucks County and nearby, see the events calendar below or at our Food Events in Bucks County online calendar.
