“Can you believe it’s Labor Day?” That’s what everyone seems to be saying. But we welcome the cooler weather and the increase in food activities in Bucks County and nearby. Lots of fun stuff to do this weekend, and in the weeks to come. Check out our calendar of Food Events in Bucks County any time to plan your eating. We update it constantly.
Mark and I had the pleasure of being at last night’s potluck and farm tour at Manoff Market Gardens, sponsored by the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance. What a perfect night. As Gary and Amy Manoff walked us through their orchards, the sunset painted the sky and the cool air surrounded us. Be sure to stop by Manoff’s for some peaches and their beautiful and varied apples have started coming in.
Labor Day Weekend Eats…where shall we start? There’s something for everyone.
First off, make sure to stop by your local farm stand or farmers’ market for the cookout. The weekend weather looks bee-u-tee-full. Veggies and fruit that is fresh and wonderful right now – corn, tomatoes, peppers (sweet and hot), eggplants, onions, and get some peaches before they’re all gone. Linden Hill has their market on Friday afternoons; Doylestown and Wrightstown are Saturday mornings. Catch Springtown’s market on Wednesday afternoons, and Lower Makefield and New Hope on Thursday afternoons (details on our calendar).
The 44th Annual Polish-American Festival takes place all weekend at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa on Ferry Road in Doylestown. Lots of good lip-smacking Polish food – pierogi, potato placki, grilled kielbasa, golabki, Polish ice, Polish fries and then all the normal fun fair food. Smacznego! (Polish for “Bon Appetit”)
Frenchtown (over on the other side of the river, in Nu Joisey) is hosting their annual RiverFest on Saturday and Sunday. The word is food is going to be great, focusing on fresh, local food and restaurants. Just the way we like it!
Get details on any of these events at our Food Events in Bucks County calendar. Have a safe and sweet weekend.
