Bucks Food Calendar: May 28, 2014

strawberry signThe big news this week? Local strawberries have been sighted. I know for sure that Milk House Farm Market in Upper Makefield has them (and they are spray-free). I’ll make some calls later this week to see what the forecast is for other berry-producing farms in Bucks. You can also check out our pasts post on where to pick your own: Strawberry time again.

The Langhorne Farmers Market opens on Tuesday, June 3. In Feasterville, the Farmers’ Market @ Playwicki Farm opens on Wednesday and on Thursday, June 6, the Lower Makefield Farmers’ Market opens for the season. For a full list of all area farmers markets (on both sides of the river), see our food guide, Local Farmers Markets.

Sandy Ridge Farm logoA big Happy Anniversary to the Sandy Ridge Farm Market in Doylestown Township. This Friday and Saturday the year-round market is celebrating its first anniversary of providing fresh, local food from area farmers and producers. They will also be introducing the Amish Market, an addition that includes Amish deli meat and cheeses, many bulk foods, homemade fudge and bakery goods and pretzels freshly made right in Doylestown. On Saturdays, beginning on May 31, they are also celebrating with a Chicken BBQ from 1 pm to 4 pm. For more information, see their website.

What you’ll find at area farmers markets this week Sugar Snap peas_BGF_photo credit Lynne Goldman Strawberries, sugar snap peas, escarole, asparagus, spring onions, spring garlic, Swiss chard, spinach, young kale (Red Russian and Tuscan), fennel, bok choy, napa cabbage, head lettuce, chives, rhubarb, rosemary, mint, dill, cilantro, lettuce, lettuce mix, radishes, mushrooms, onion and leek plants, and more, all depending on the weather, of course.

You’ll also be able to pick up eggs from free-range chickens, grass-fed and pastured meats, preserves, specialty foods, baked goods like breads, cakes, cookies and pastries, cheese and yogurt, locally roasted coffee, and interesting crafts from local artisans.

Barbecue season is officially open! Stop by the Stockton Fire Company on Saturday, May 31 from 4 pm to 7 pm for their annual Bar-B-Que & Beer Fundraiser. On Sunday, June 1  head over to the Chalfont Fire Company’s annual Chicken BBQ, going on from 11 am to 4 pm, or until they sell out.
