It’s been awhile since I’ve done a “weekend run-down.” But I’m finally feeling more myself and getting over (fingers crossed) this pneumonia. Mark, however, has bronchitis. My family has started referring to our home as “Plague City.” Lovely.
But there is so much fun stuff going on this weekend that I simply had to write about it. I only wish we were well enough to go to some of the events! And the weather promises to be sunny and cool. Details on any of these events can be found at our online calendar, Food Events in Bucks County.
Vegetarian delight. What are you doing tonight? Check out the Kindle Café’s Supper Club. Delaware Valley newcomer Chef/Owner Vincent Peterson has started a weekly gourmet vegetarian dinner in Lambertville every Friday night at Rojo’s Roastery. We haven’t gotten there yet but the menus look delicious. Using local produce and products for a prix fixe $25 dinner, BYOB.
Apples, apples, apples. There are two festivals celebrating apples this weekend in Bucks County. The Riegelsville Community Fire Company — the same folks who put on such a great breakfast once a month — will be hosting the Apple Fest in Riegelsville on Saturday, November 7th from 10 am to 3 pm. Peddler’s Village in Lahaska also has a fun weekend planned for their 38th Annual Apple Festival, featuring local apple orchards, antique cider press demonstrations, authentic apple butter production, a variety of apple treats from apple dumplings to apple fritters, and apple pie eating contests. Festivities begin at 10 am and go until 6 pm.
What’s for breakfast…and dinner? From Hartsville (Warminster), to Plumsteadville, to Upper Black Eddy and Silverdale, you’ve got your choice of hot breakfasts at various firehouses and a grange this weekend. Yum. And for dinner, there’s a host (no pun intended) of church suppers in Chalfont, Pleasant Valley and Warrington. See our calendar for details.
Farmers markets still open! Doylestown Farmers’ Market and Wrightstown Farmers’ Market are still going on Saturday mornings through the weekend before Thanksgiving, as is the New Hope Farmers’ Market on Thursday afternoons up until November 19th. Also, the Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market in Hellertown stays open on Sundays through November 22nd. Stock up on vegetables for the winter and for your Thanksgiving meal. Also coming…an indoor farmers’ market in Stockton, set to open Thanksgiving weekend. Stay tuned for more details.
