Bucks Food Calendar: September 16, 2010

Crisp, sunny days. Cool nights. Crunchy leaves underfoot. If I didn’t know it was fall by these familiar things, all I need to do is look at our food events calendar for the culinary equivalent – apples, wine, beer and harvest festivals. Sandwiched between a hot, dry summer and a cold winter to come, we have to enjoy autumn while we can, and grasp every beautiful moment.

Apples? If you missed our post earlier this week, check out Apple Sightings for where you can buy and pick a wide variety of apples. Or go to one of the apple festivals this weekend – one at The Market at Del Val College  in Doylestown or another one at Terhune Orchards in nearby Princeton.

Beer anyone? How about the Beer Festival at McCoole’s in Quakertown, or the Rockin’ Brewfest in Trenton, both on Saturday? Next weekend is the Newtown Blues and Brews (Sept 25), not to be confused with the Newtown BrewFest, which is happening on October 16th. Whew.

Or…wine anyone? It’s also harvest time for grapes! Keep an eye on the calendar over the next month for some great harvest and wine releases at area wineries, like the Cabernet Savignon Wine Release at Alba Vineyard, in Milford, this Saturday, or the Harvest Bootcamp at Unionville Vineyards in Ringoes next weekend. Alba Vineyard will also be celebrating their Grand Harvest Festival next weekend, and Crossing Vineyards will host their annual Harvest Festival the weekend of October 9th and 10th.

Eating out in the field. There are also several farm-to-table dinners this weekend that may still have tickets available. Check out our post from last week, September farm to table dinners, listing all the events with contact information.

Of course, our local farmers’ markets are still in full swing with lots of veggies, meat, cheese, baked goods, preserves and honey, to mention just a few delicacies. Grab the last of tomatoes, corn and even some peaches here and there.

For more details on any of these events, please go to our full calendar, Food Events in Bucks County. Have a crisp, delicious weekend. Connect with Bucks County Taste on Facebook and Twitter too!
