'Mini' Farmers Market Offers Local Food Through Winter

The Doylestown Farmers Market doesn't operate through the winter, but a short drive to Wrightstown can feed the hunger for local produce and products.

If you have the third Saturday in April circled on your calendar, don't despair.

That's the day when the 2013 Doylestown Farmers Market is expected to reopen for another season.

But you don't have to wait until then to get your hands on some locally grown produce and products.

The Wrightstown Farmers' Market will be holding "mini-markets" on the second and fourth Saturday of each month. Sponsored by the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance, the markets will run from now through April 2013.


They last only one hour, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., so don't dawdle.

Organizers say plenty of local produce and products will be available, including fresh salad greens, root vegetables, carrots, apples, winter squash and more.

Pastured pork and lamb, grass-fed beef and eggs, also will be available, as will fresh fair-trade, organically roasted coffee, honey, mushrooms, prepared foods, baked goods, nuts, applesauce, cider, goat cheese and natural pet foods.

The market also will feature gift items, such as fragrant soaps, lotions, fruit butters and other jarred treats.

The markets are held at 2203 Second Street Pike, in the municipal parking lot at the Wrightstown Township building.
