Bucks Food Calendar: April 19, 2013

IMG-20130406-00066By this time of year, I’m yearning for local vegetables. We were recently out in San Francisco and we visited the Ferry Building Farmers’ Market. Wow. I know they are a month or two ahead of us, but, wow. Artisanal cheeses, vegetables, strawberries, oysters, baked goods, meat and porchetta sandwiches.

But…many local farmers are using greenhouses and hoop houses to extend the seasons and you may be surprised at what you will find at area farmers’ markets. I just received an email from Gravity Hill Farm in Titusville saying they will be at the Stockton Market with arugula, chives, radishes, spinach and four varieties of kale: Toscano/Lacinato, Siberian, and White and Red Russian. The Doylestown Farmers’ Market begins the season this Saturday with baby head lettuce, spinach, bok choy, salad mix, dandelion, endive, spring onions, radishes, sorrel, miners lettuce, braising greens, watercress, mustard greens, arugula, kale, Swiss chard, radishes, scallions, sweet pea shoots, spring garlic, ramps, onions, mushrooms, potatoes, fresh herbs, vegetable and herb plants as well as flowering plants. The Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers Market will have their last “winter” market on Sunday in Flemington and the Ottsville Farmers Market begins their regular season next Friday, April 26 (4 – 8 pm). Yippee.

llamasRoad trip! Sunday is looking to be a nice day. Start out with any one of five firehouse or church breakfasts here in Bucks (Perkasie, Riegelsville, Ottsville, Chalfont and Silverdale – details below). Then drive over to Stockton and stroll around the Stockton Market. Afterwards, head over to WoodsEdge Wools Farm for their Llama Shearing Fest (you heard me right), also near Stockton. Finally, go back to town and have a Roast Beef Dinner at the Stockton Fire Company. You might want to do some walking on the tow path too. Work off some of those calories.

Sweets for the sweet. Saturdays in April the Chaddsford Winery Tasting Room in Lahaska will be serving Cupcakes & Cocktails. For $8 you’ll get to sample three wine drinks and cocktails, munch on a delicious cupcake and take home a keepsake glass. Coming up next Saturday, April 27 is the Chocolate Lovers’ Fantasy, an annual Bucks event that celebrates all things chocolate and raises much needed money for A Woman’s Place, an organization that provides services for victims of domestic violence. The event will take place at Tyler Hall on the campus of the Bucks County Community College in Newtown. See their website for more details.

Roxy Reading two dogsWoof! On Tuesday evening, April 23, stop by Chambers in Doylestown for the Celebrity Bartender Event for Roxy Reading Therapy Dogs. The organization provides volunteer therapy dog teams to promote literacy and to comfort elementary school children who have autism, multiple disabilities and other emotional, psychological and physical challenges. Drinking for a great cause!
