Bucks Food Calendar: September 5, 2017

Unlike most families that spent their holiday “chilling and grilling,” I spent my Labor Day weekend camping upstate in Columbia County, NY connecting with nature and trying my hardest to get the “no service” signal on my phone to turn into 4G.

Bash Bish Falls, NY

One of my favorite parts of the trip was driving down Route 22. We saw farm market after farm market, bursting with fresh produce, pies, cheese, meat, and eggs. Just like in Bucks County, a lot of these country living folks depend on community supported agriculture.

However you spent it, Labor Day was a great way to hit the refresh button and say farewell to summer. Kids are back in school, summer vacations are over, and it’s time to soak up all the nice weather before it gets too cold.

And although this week is a shorter work-week, there is still plenty to do and plenty to eat in Bucks County; keep reading and you’ll see what we mean!


Food at Bowman's TavernMondays Matter at Bowman’s. Hurricane Harvey has greatly impact families and businesses in Texas. There are many ways you can help the residents in and around Houston and Beaumont/Port Arthur by dining at Bowman’s in Bucks County. Each Monday in September, the restaurant will donate 10% of food sales to the Red Cross Hurricane Harvey.

And, if you are looking for other ways to help those in need, see here for a list of places that are accepting donations or looking for additional support.

Peace Valley Winery

Own a piece of Peace Valley Winery. Now that it’s closing down, it’s time to get rid of all of the pieces that made up the Peace Valley Winery. If you want a memento (or a tractor), now is your chance. This Tuesday, September 5 is their auction, which starts at 10 am at Peace Valley Winery’s location in Chalfont. See here for auction details.

How ’bout them apples? One of the first signs of fall’s arrival are the return of apples. You can now begin picking your own apples at various orchards in and around Bucks County. For instance, Solebury Orchards welcomes its first abundant crop of Gala apples, which are a crispy, sweet flavored apple for eating. Their hours are Thursday through Sunday, 9 am – 6 pm. You can check out their market updates or head to the orchard for pick-your-own.

In a couple of weeks, we’ll issue our annual apple guide. Check out our Pinterest board “Falling for Food!” Let us know if you try any of our pinned recipes!

Fresh food from your farmers market. You don’t have to wait until the weekend to pick up your favorite market produce. There are plenty spots that are open during the week, like the Farmers Market @ Playwicki Farm, the Lower Makefield Farmers Market, and the Milk House Farm Market. Other markets that are open week-long include Shady Brook Farm and The Market at DelVal, and the Doylestown Food Market. See our complete list of farmers markets in Bucks County here.

With all of that fresh produce, you’re going to need to know how to properly store it to get your money’s worth. Chef Rich Baringer shares how to select and store produce this season, so you’ll get the most out of your fresh veggies and fruits.

On the radar…
