Peaches, corn, tomatoes. That’s August in Bucks County, only this year minus the heat and humidity. It doesn’t make the peaches and tomatoes happy because they like hot weather, but it sure is nice sleeping weather for us humans.

Another sign of August is the arrival of Freddie’s Tomatoes at the Pineville Tavern. It’s a simple yet delicious dish made with fresh tomatoes from the Slack Farm a few miles away in Forest Grove. Unfortunately, Fred Slack Sr. passed away last October but his son, Fred Jr., and other family members, have continued the tradition. Stop by for some great tomatoes and corn (read our article, The Tomato Triangle, here to learn more).

Restaurant highlights. The Lovin’ Oven, one of Frenchtown’s best eateries, is hosting another of their Farm to Table Dinners tomorrow night (Thursday, August 21). See their website for more information.

Every Monday night, Hearth creates a Chef’s Choice Prix Fixe full of local, seasonal and organic vegetables and sustainable fish. It’s a great deal at $30. The cozy restaurant sits at Ferry and Main Streets in New Hope (“the old Martine’s).

This Friday it’s Blue Crab Night at the Vintage Grille in Fountainville. This outdoor dining event includes steamed blue crabs, an abundance of sides and a pitcher of beer for the table (other options are available if someone doesn’t eat crab). Click here for more details and to reserve your table. Also this Tuesday evening, the restaurant is holding another of their “watch and eat” dinners, The Cook & the Cork: Tapas/Small Plates.

In the “Who knew?” department. Monday is National Mac ‘N’ Cheese Day. The Washington House in Sellersville is celebrating by serving a free mini Twisted Mac ‘n’ Cheese appetizer when you come in for lunch or dinner.

To market, to market. Here’s what you can expect to find at local farmers markets this week.
