Doylestown Farmers Market Opening Day

The Doylestown Farmers Market, located in the heart of the Borough on South Hamilton Street between West State Street and West Oakland Avenue, will celebrate the opening day of its 43rd year on April 14, 2018.  The market begins the 2018 season with NEW HOURS from 8am to 1pm! Opening Day will also be Customer Appreciation Day to say thank you for a fabulous season last year under the new leadership of the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance.  Along with live music by Elle, the market will offer light refreshments and tastings at selected vendors.

            Think it's too early to get locally produced food?  Think again.  On Opening Day our farmers will have meats, eggs, cow and goat cheeses in many varieties as well as fresh vegetables and plants for your Spring garden.  Speaking of great beginnings, how about breakfast?  Delight your senses as you bring home locally roasted fair trade and certified organic coffee, complete with expert brewing advice (and of course, a tasty sample!). Take home artisan breads, savory treats, and pastries all made within miles of the market for a sumptuous start to your day!

            Our farmers can't wait to bring you the freshest, in-season fruits and vegetables grown sustainably right here from April 14 to November 17th.  Early in the season we’ll have a wide variety of plant starts and then cut flowers all year long to brighten your home! While you wait for the plants to take off, fill the pantry with preserved and fermented foods from jellies and jams to kombucha and kimchi.  Get your local honey and load up the fridge and freezer with handmade pastas and sauces! We’re also excited for you to try micro brewed beer and offerings from our new local wine and liquor vendors.

            Doylestown Farmers Market loves dogs!  Find homemade treats, healthy food, and handmade pet toys along with special activities just for your furry friends. We love to feature our canine visitors on our social media feeds!

If you care about what you’re putting into your body, don’t overlook what you’re putting onto it! Our natural skin and body care producers offer handmade soaps and lotions, and other body care products featuring locally sourced ingredients. Take care of yourself with locally grown herbal medicines and tea blends that will get you through everything from seasonal allergies to cuts and burns.

            The season promises to be full of excitement with chef demos, children’s activities (including the return of Scavenger Hunts), community organization visits, and the very best in healthy, local, sustainable food. Due to the seasonal nature of locally grown food, the market is never the same twice, so plan on visiting often!  To be up to the minute on all market happenings subscribe to the market newsletter at www.bucksfoodshed.org and follow Doylestown Farmers Market on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
