Bucks Food Calendar: May 17, 2013

Radishes at Wrightstown Farmers MarketThe weather may be a little iffy this weekend but hopefully it will hold off raining. Saturday is New Hope’s 10th Annual Pride Parade (starting at noon) and I would hate for that parade to get rained on!

Farmers Markets. The Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers Market at Dvoor Farm in Flemington opens for the season this Sunday with hours from 9 am to 1 pm. You’ll find pasture-raised meats, eggs, vegetables, cheeses and even, wine. See more about their vendors on their website.

What can you expect to find at most farmers markets this week? Rosemary, thyme, chives, arugula and sorrel, asparagus, tender broccoli rabe, dandelion greens, Tuscan and Red Russian kale, lettuce, radishes, spinach, stinging nettles, tatsoi, bok choi, green garlic, Swiss chard, and rhubarb.

Many markets will have fresh, hormone and antibiotic-free, pasture-raised chicken, turkey, pork and 100% grass-fed beef, and pasture-raised, free range eggs. Look also for cow and goat milk cheeses, smoothies, yogurt, and milk; foraged wild mushrooms and cultivated mushrooms, and prepared foods like dill pickles, sauces, fruit butters, gluten free and vegan products, olive oil, and humus. Artisanal breads and baked goods, including gluten free, are at several markets and you may find organic maple syrup, as well as fair trade, organic, locally roasted coffee.

Canned goodsAdopt-A-Pantry Food Drive. It may be difficult to imagine but ten percent of Bucks County residents are food insecure. The Bucks County Opportunity Council has organized a major food drive, Adopt-A-Pantry 2013, which will help area pantries stock up for summertime when children don’t receive breakfast and lunch from school and their shelves are the emptiest. More than 102,000 people visited pantries here last year, receiving 1,243,715 meals. All food collected will benefit the Food and Nutrition Network (FaNN), made up of 27 food distribution sites.

What type of food is needed? Non-perishable, unexpired food like canned food including meats, soups, fruit, tuna, and vegetables. Rice, beans, granola bars, cereal, powdered milk, peanut butter, pasta, sauces, oatmeal, pudding and jelly are also welcome. Where can you drop it off? At Delaware Valley College on this Saturday, May 18; Monday, May 20 and Tuesday, May 21. To learn more about the drive and how to volunteer to help sorting, see their website.

Riegelsville Fire Company breakfastFirehouse Breakfasts. There are three going on this Sunday – in Perkasie, Riegelsville and Sellersville. All three do this on a regular basis so they know what they are doing. See the full food calendar for details. Yum.

The Old Bethlehem Road Hotel in Quakertown (well, really Haycock Township) is having their 1st Annual Open House on Monday night. Free drinks and food for everyone! They want to thank all their loyal customers. Pretty nice thing to do. It begins at 5 pm and goes until 9 pm.

Don’t forget this Saturday, Carversville Day and the Perkasie SpringFest will be taking place. See our post from last week about these fun days.
