I’m back! Well, mostly. Still got a bit of a cough, but doesn’t everyone these days? And the weather is feeling more like March than February. Will we get a big snowstorm one of these days? I’d bet on it.

Farmers’ markets. This weekend stop by the Ottsville Indoor Farmers’ Market at Linden Hill Gardens in Ottsville. Next week will be their last winter market. They will open their weekly Friday outdoor market on April 27. Makes it feel like spring is just around the corner! The Hunterdon Land Trust’s Farmers’ Market at Dvoor Farm is doing an outdoor market the third Sunday of each winter month. See their website for vendors who will be there. Of course, there is also the Stockton Market every weekend, Fridays through Sunday. It has become quite a bustling market full of produce (yes, even in winter, thanks to Milk House Farm), artisanal goods, meats, seafood, baked goods and tasty prepared foods.

Alba Vineyard will be holding their 11th Annual Wine and Chocolate Weekend on Saturday and Sunday. It’s wine and chocolate, of course, but you’ll also find cheese from Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse, gourmet samples from DiSh Catering, as well as wine tasting and pairing with artisanal chocolates. Wine tastings that include samples of Alba’s wines, chocolate and food pairings, an hourly cellar tour and a commemorative etched Alba wine glass for each guest to keep will be available throughout the day for $15 per person.

Cook it up! You may notice as you peruse the calendar the cooking classes that often occupy week days. We’re fortunate in Bucks County to have some great cooking schools – Carlow Cookery in Doylestown, The Cooking Cottage in Sellersville, and the Kitchen Garden Cooking School in Upper Black Eddy, to name a few. The classes are varied – everything from the basics to cuisines from many countries. Look forward in the Bucks County Taste calendar or visit some of their websites to see upcoming courses.

Want to network while enjoying samples of great local food? Stop by the 3rd Annual Locavore Buy Local event at Superior Woodcraft in Doylestown this Thursday, February 23rd. Superior Woodcraft opens their workshop – a  cavernous space used to build cabinetry – for this event and it’s a blast. Local chefs, ice cream makers, bakers, coffee roasters, brewers, winemakers and more, set up tables and offer tastes of their specialties. Come early if you can because last year over 500 people attended and parking was a little challenging. You can find Superior Woodcraft at 160 North Hamilton Street in Doylestown. Learn more about the event here.
