Bucks Food Calendar: July 6, 2012

I know, I know. I always start my calendar post talking about the weather but this week, whew! Try to stay cool, doing outside things – like going to a farmers’ market – early in the day, and drinking lots of water, even when you’re inside. Okay, I’ll stop. You know how to take care of yourself. And you probably already have a mother.

Things are definitely slowing down in terms of food events but many of the regulars are still happening, like beer and wine tastings, wine and music evenings, and, of course, farmers’ markets. Here are my picks for the week:

  • Terhune Orchards over in Princeton, NJ is holding their annual Blueberry Bash all day Saturday and Sunday. Lots of activities and blueberries. See their website for more information.
  • Micro Brew Beer Tasting at the Washington House in Sellersville on Friday night. In honor of American independence, they’ll be tasting only American beer styles, among them Anchor Steam California Common, Founders Centennial American IPA, Duck-Rabbit Hoppy Bunny American Black Ale and Rock Art Vermonster American Barleywine. Reservations are strongly suggested. Here’s their website. And on Wednesday, July 11, the Spinnerstown Hotel will host their monthly “Meet the Brewery” dinner with Oskar Blues beer. See their website for more details.
  • Speaking of beer and blueberries, Triumph Brewing Company in New Hope will be tapping a new barrel this Friday evening as they do on the first Friday every month. This month it will Blueberry Ale!
  • The Bucks County Foodshed Alliance continues their potluck and tour summer evenings on this Monday, July 9 at the Garden of Reflection 9/11 Memorial in Newtown, which also include some pretty cool community gardens. Potluck begins at 6 pm.
  • Last chance for homemade Ukrainian food until the fall! St. Anne Ukrainian Church in Warrington will be selling pyrohy, Holubschi (stuffed cabbage) and kielbasa Wednesday evening from 5 pm to 7 pm.

To market, to market. Sweet corn is starting to show up locally, early like everything else! You’ll also probably see the following at area farm stands and farmers’ markets: Green beans, new potatoes, basil, carrots, fennel, eggplant, sweet corn, fresh garlic, spring onions, berries, cucumbers, tomatoes, cabbages, patty pan squash, summer squash, red beets, Asian turnips, kohlrabi, spinach, kale, lettuces, rainbow chard, broccoli, bok choy, tat soi, collards, radishes, rhubarb, mushrooms, peppers (maybe), dill, parsley, cilantro and other herbs. Also shop for organic free-range eggs, pasture-raised meats, baked goods, prepared foods and more.
