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 some free corn (see how below) and taste summer dinner menu specials from all over Bucks County.



Whiskey, Washington House
Whiskey around the world.
 If you have enjoyed the Washington House’s beer or wine dinners, then try this new addition: a whiskey tasting. This Tuesday, August 9, sample whiskey from around the globe, paired with a four-course dinner for $59 per person. The chosen whiskeys include Maker’s Mark 46, 2 Gingers from Ireland, Canadian Club Rye and Auchentoshan Scotch. Please call 215.257.3000 to make reservations. 

Robinson's Eating on the Wild Side, NPR

Eating on the Wild Side. Eating on the Wild Side: the Missing Link to Optimum Health by Jo Robinson is the next stage in the food revolution. This book discusses a radical way to select fruits and vegetables and reclaim the nutrients and flavors that we have lost. Interested? Come to the Doylestown Bookshop to discuss this interesting and informative book from 6:15 – 8 pm on Tuesday, August 9. There is a 20% discount provided to Food For Thought book club selection at the Doylestown Bookshop. If you didn’t read the book, no worries, come for the discussion and to meet new people. [Note: the Food for Thought Book Club meets the second Tuesday of every month. Click here for more information.]

The Market at DelVal

Free corn! Get some free corn this week just by providing your email address. Shady Brook Farm is updating its files, so come into the market and share your email address and you will receive 1/2 dozen ears of homegrown sweet corn. This offer is good until August 14. Also, the Market at DelVal is doing the same thing, so head to Doylestown so you can get your free corn there. This offer ends on August 14. 

Update: No pick-your-own peaches at The Market at DelVal this year, but they do have locally grown peaches in store, as well as PYO blackberries. Find out who else has peaches in store by checking out this post: A circus in your mouth.

Community lunch. Come to the Centenary United Methodist Church, this Wednesday, August 10 from 12 – 2 pm for a delicious free lunch open to all. There will be great food including some from local, organic farms. The church is on North Union Street in Lambertville, NJ. Come meet your neighbors!
