As we enter the holiday week – because, let’s be honest, with July 4th falling in the middle of the week it kind of sweeps up everything else around it – things are slowing down a little. Kids off to camp, vacations starting, going down the shore, etc.

But there’s a couple of things that caught my eye in this week’s calendar.

Lambertville Station is offering a Lavender Lunch and Tour. Lunch is “lavender-inspired” followed by a tour of Peace Valley Lavender Farm in Doylestown, where you can wander among the sweet lavender and pick you own bunch. The event takes place June 29, June 30 and July 1. Call 609.397.8256 for information and reservations.

One of the ways I know it’s July 4th is the Riverside Symphonia’s Concert Under the Stars, which happens every year the Saturday evening before the 4th in Tinicum Park. While this isn’t technically a food event, well, if you’ve ever been, you know that much food is involved. Gates open at 6 pm and people flow in with baskets, coolers, tablecloths, and lots of food. A friend of mine once called it “competitive picnicking.” Some folks bring tables and candelabras! Most just bring a nice picnic basket and enjoy sitting under the evening sky. The concert begins at 8 pm, followed by fireworks. Check out their website for information on where to buy tickets (you can also buy at the gate).

To market, to market. What can you expect to find at area farmers’ markets this week? Blueberries, raspberries, cucumbers, cabbages, patty pan and summer squash, basil, fresh garlic, red beets, Asian turnips, kohlrabi, spinach, kale, lettuces, rainbow chard, peas, broccoli, bok choy, tat soi, collards, radishes, rhubarb, mushrooms, dill, parsley, cilantro and other herbs, and (maybe) tomatoes. With the hot days we’ve been having, it may be the last we see of some of the greens until cooler weather in the fall. Many markets also have free-range eggs, pastured meats, baked goods, honey, and specialty foods. To find your closest market, see our post, Local Farmers’ Markets 2012.
