Peachy-Keen Weekend

It’s been a busy week. We were thrilled at the wonderful article this past Wednesday by Betty Cichy in the Bucks County Courier Times /Intelligencer about Bucks County Taste. We were even more blown away by the site “hits” we got. Those of you who checked us out for the first time – thank you, thank you, thank you. And please come back. Be sure to tell us what you’d like to see on Bucks County Taste in the future. We’ve got lots in the works – interviews, reviews, interactive maps of food places in Bucks and more.

Peaches and blueberries - Summer!But…ah, the weekend is here with unseasonably comfortable weather. Tomorrow looks beautiful so get out and enjoy the sunshine and low humidity. Since we now have our Food Events in Bucks County calendar more easily accessible on the site, I won’t be doing as detailed a review of weekend events. Everything you need to know is just one click away now.

Tonight there are several fun events going on. Mark Cosgrove and Friends will be playing at Crossing Vineyards and Winery in Washington Crossing. Throw together a picnic dinner, buy some wine and sit back and enjoy some great blue grass music. Starts at 7 pm.

Brad’s Raw Chips is having another one of its now famous Chip Parties at the R.A.T. Gallery in Gardenville from 7 pm to whenever. Munch, munch, crunch…and it’s good for you too!

Peaches seem to be dominating the weekend. Great peaches are available everywhere. Try the local farmers’ markets as well as these local producers: Bechdolts Orchard (Hellertown), Fairview Farm (Pineville), Lapinski Farm (Dublin), Manoff’s (Solebury), Penn Vermont Fruit Farm (Bedminster), Shady Brook Farm (Yardley), Solebury Orchards (Solebury), Solly’s Farm Market (Ivyland), Styer Orchard (Langhorne), and Tall Pine Farm (Wrightstown).

Two peachy events are also taking place on Sunday. Shady Brook Farm is putting on a Peach Festival as part of their Sunday Funday series, from 12 Noon to 4 pm. There’s also a Peach Festival at the Bristol Cultural and Historical Foundation from 3 pm to 6 pm in Bristol.

Peddler’s Village is putting on a village-wide Summer Food & Fun Fair & Sidewalk Sale. The Village will have summer foods sizzling on the grill and plenty of live entertainment. It will also be Peddler’s Village First Annual Community Days from noon to 4 pm each day on the Street Road Green, with nonprofit organizations exhibiting and sharing information.

Have a wonderful, safe weekend.
