Wrightstown Farmers Market is sponsored by the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance. Together we strive to facilitate connections between local, sustainable farmers and consumers. Today, the market supports a diverse array of over 25 vendors of organic vegetables, fruit, artisanal breads, cheeses, local honey and pastured animal products free of antibiotics and hormones. The flavor, purity, quantity, and quality of the offerings are incomparable in Bucks County.

In addition to the regular season which runs every Saturday, rain or shine, May-November from 9-1pm, the Wrightstown Winter Farmers Market is held the 2nd & 4th Saturdays Dec. – Apr. 10-11am and is also located at 2203 Second Street Pike, next to the Wrightstown Township municipal offices. We look forward to seeing you there!

First Annual Foodshed 5K

Bucks County Foodshed Alliance held its first annual Foodshed 5K on Saturday, October 3, at Delaware Valley University. Despite the brisk weather that hurricane Joaquin brought to town, race planners deemed the fundraiser a success. 

 

 

All proceeds from the race benefit BCFA, a grassroots nonprofit dedicated to building a resilient local food system in our community through education and collaboration.

Medals were given for overall male and female finishers and ribbons to the top three males and females in eight age brackets. Prizes included many that were food- and farm-related, such as gift certificates to local restaurants and vegetables and fruits from local farms.

“Our overall winner was DVU student Joshua Massey,” said race coordinator and BCFA treasurer Mike Olenick. “We learned that Josh was out milking the cows on the farm before running—and winning—the 5K, which truly reflects what BCFA is all about."
