I love early June. It’s not too hot, you can finally dine outside, and evening strolls are warm and pleasant. Plus, there’s all the summer produce that’s starting to pop up at area farmers markets.
This weekend, you’ll find all your favorite veggies and fruits at the market. Since it’s the first Friday of the month, many towns are celebrating with their “First Fridays” too.
Several Bucks County restaurants have some fun early summer events this week. Sip on some local beers, eat some fajitas and margaritas, and head to Solebury Trinity for delicious lobster!
Events are listed in chronological order
1. Lower Makefield Farmers Market
Thursday, June 1, 3:30 – 6:30 pm, Veterans Square Park, Edgewood Rd. at Heacock Rd., PA
Head to the Lower Makefield Farmers Market for some tasty early June produce. You’ll find strawberries, lettuce, kale, scapes, kohlrabi, as well as baked goods, meats, treats, and more. This week, you can also buy a zucchini plant for $1. Then, on August 10, come back to the market for the Zucchini Races! More on that later…for now, shop local and stock up on fresh items for the week!

2. Fajita-Rita Night at Rising Sun Inn
Thursday, June 1, 5 – 10 pm, Rising Sun Inn, 898 Allentown Rd., Telford
You know what pairs well with $5 margaritas? Sizzling fajitas. Thursday nights are now Fajita-Rita-Nights at the Rising Sun Inn. From 5 – 10 pm, you can enjoy chicken, steak or shrimp fajitas with warm tortilla shells, peppers, onions, cheddar cheese, sour cream, and salsa. The guac’ is a dollar extra. Eat your fajitas in the tavern or on the deck.
3. Beer Tasting: River Horse Brewing Company
Friday, June 2, 5 – 11 pm, The Washington House, 136 N. Main St., Sellersville, PA
Kick off Friday with four selections of River Horse Brewing Company’s beers this weekend at the Washington House in Sellersville. River Horse Brewing Company was actually born and raised in New Jersey by “finance geeks” that wanted to escape their cubicles and live life to the fullest, with beer. They have fun doing it, and you’ll probably have fun drinking it.
4. Foodie First Friday
Friday, June 2, Downtown Doylestown, PA
The first Friday of the month means it’s time to visit Doylestown for Foodie First Friday. This monthly event celebrates culture, community and cuisine. Many of the restaurants have specials for the celebration, so try a restaurant you’ve never been to, or stop by your usual place and enjoy your favorites.

6. Wine and Munchkins

I bet you’ve tried wine and cheese. Maybe wine and chocolate. But wine and..munchkin donuts? It’s a bit wacky, but it definitely sounds worth tasting.

No reservation needed, and you can find more information here.

It includes a 1 ¼ lb lobster or ½ rack of smoked organic pork ribs. Both dinners include a beverage, corn on the cob, coleslaw, and a roll. Homemade clam chowder is available too. It’s quite the seafood feast.
And, there will be a concession stand selling hamburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, and other carnival foods. For sweets, visit the homemade dessert table and Nina’s Waffles truck. Pricing and ordering online is here. You MUST order before Saturday, June 3, the date of the event.

Monday, July 3: Bowman’s to Bowman’s Road Trip…again! We had so much fun at this event in April that we’ve got to do it again.

Then we’ll bring you back down to New Hope, hopefully sober enough to drive. Details coming this week.
