There’s nothing like an evening stroll through your favorite Bucks County town, especially when it’s fall. When I went to school at DelVal, I used to walk around Doylestown with a cup of coffee, admiring all the changing leaves and crossing the street just to step in a big crunchy pile of them.

I encourage you to experience the changes of nature this week, stop by a farm market and pick up some seasonal produce, or order a special dish on the menu of a new restaurant. Just like I did with the crunchy leaves, it’s nice to go out of your way to experience these special moments, no matter how small they are.


Liberty Hall Pizza

Business and pizza. Don’t forget to bring your business cards and your appetite to the “Business after Business” networking event, hosted by Liberty Hall Pizza and the Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce. Come prepared for some great pizza, appetizers, and complimentary beverages. The cost is free for one chamber member per organization and $25 for future members or guests. The event runs from 5:30 – 7:30 pm on Tuesday, September 27. RSVP to events@libertyhallpizza.com or online here.

Community lunch.  Here’s a great opportunity to meet your neighbors and make new friends. On Wednesday, September 14, from noon – 2 pm, enjoy a community lunch at the Centenary United Methodist Church, on North Union Street, in Lambertville, NJ. The lunch, which is free and open to all, is made using organic and local ingredients.

Did you know that September is National Mushroom Month? The Golden Pheasant Inn is celebrating the fungus and the autumn equinox with its famous mushroom soup, prepared by Chefs Blake and Jon. Thanks to Mainly Mushrooms LLC, the soup is packed with a variety of mushrooms like shitake, button, oyster, and cremini, just to name a few. Check out what else is in store this week at the inn by giving them a call or visiting their Facebook page.

Speaking of mushrooms, did you know you can actually grow your own shiitake mushrooms? Here are some tips from some ‘shroom experts in Bucks County and nearby.

Manoff Market Gardens Apples

Apples galore! If you haven’t noticed by now, it’s apple season. Manoff Market Gardens is known for their tasty apple varieties, so stop in to pick up a bag or two. Right now you’ll find Gala, Zestar, Sanza, Honey Crisp, and Ginger Gold ripe and ready to eat. As for other produce, the peaches and nectarines of the season are officially finished. Don’t despair, the market still has flowers and raspberries if you want more than just apples. If you like your apples in liquid form, the market makes fresh pressed cider every week. Farm hours are Monday – Saturday, 9 am – 5:30 pm. 

Dinner
Over in Jersey… 
Welcome back the flavors of the fall season with the return of a few dishes at the Frenchtown Inn. The restaurant’s puree of butternut squash soup and everybody’s favorite chicken pot pie are back, so stop by this week for lunch from 12 – 3 pm, or dinner from 5 – 9 pm. The inn also has a new fall item: fresh figs, Anjou pears, Parma prosciutto and fresh shaved Parmesan drizzled with white truffle oil.
