How to Find Find Farmers’ Markets Near You

September 18, 2014 1:02 pm

If you strive to include local, organic produce in your diet, this post is for you! The following two websites make it easy to track down farmers' markets near you, so you can continue to stock your kitchen with fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers.

USDA’s National Farmers Market Directory [USDA]
Listing more than 8,200 markets across the U.S., the USDA's farmers' market directory makes it easy to find exactly what you're looking for. You can search by zip code, available products, accepted payment, and location (e.g. farm or closed-off street). Making this tool even more convenient, results can be exported to a spreadsheet or viewed in map form.

Farmers' Markets [Local Harvest]
This website displays local farmers' markets in map form with a directory of market names listed underneath. Simply type your zip code at the top of the webpage, then click the results for more information and product highlights of each farmers' market.

Triumph Brewing Company: Craft Brews and Innovative Food

September 17, 2014 12:06 pm

Triumph Brewing Company makes some of the region's most popular craft brews, and it also operates a gastropub right in New Hope. At Triumph, you’ll find a diverse array of beers, ranging from German-style heffeweisens to hoppy ales and crisp, pale lagers.

Of course, the taps are always flowing with house-made microbrews, but the food menu is just as good a reason to visit. The Triumph kitchen focuses on using fresh, locally sourced ingredients in creative dishes like pork tacos with bacon, spicy corn salsa and ancho vinaigrette, and savory lamb meatballs served with spiced carrots, cucumber, and yogurt. If you’re not in the mood for a full meal, a side of fries is a nice complement to a beer.

In addition to craft beer and food, Triumph Brewery regularly hosts special events like live musical performances, team trivia nights, and poker tournaments.
