They're cropping up all over the country: farmers markets! As people become more interested in finding the freshest and tastiest food, farmers markets have become the destination to find fruits and veggies grown by local providers, often organically.
Spring means that farmers market season is ramping up, so here are five items to seek out next time you go to market!
One of the best items to find fresh at the farmers market. Store-bought eggs are great, but they often can't match the consistency and flavor of those arriving fresh from the farm. Eggs found at the farmers market frequently have brighter, firmer yolks, and are often much more flavorful. Some farmers even offer duck eggs, which are great for baking.
Ususally much smaller than spuds you'd find at the store, fresh potatoes carry bold and complex flavors. Slice em thin and roast with onions for a terrific side dish.
These are some of the best items to find at a farmers market. Late summer and early fall is the prime time to find fresh, ripe tomatoes, available in many varieties you might not find at the supermarket. Heirloom tomatoes, in particular, are tasty on sandwiches.
Like many other things you'd find at the market, beets are great for canning and pickling. Pickled beets are a treat: they're savory, sweet, tangy, and salty all at once, making them a unique taste devotees love.
Many dairies make they're own cheeses, and you can often find some interesting artisan varieties at the farmers market. You can sometimes even sample a taste before you buy!
Today we celebrate and show our appreciation for all of the fantastic fathers in our lives and we hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing day!
Offering hormone free, grass fed derived beef, Basically Burgers takes this wholesome foundation and builds you a better burger from the ground up. Forget about the standard burger fixings, Basically Burgers offers preparations like the mac ‘n cheese burger, which features two patties topped with gooey mac n’ cheese. There is also the taste of Italy burger replete with Italian meats, and the French onion burger, inspired by the classic soup of the same name. Of course more traditional versions are available, and some not so traditional, like ostrich meat in lieu of beef, as well as a bison burger topped with crumbled blue cheese. Basically Burgers also has an array of sandwiches to choose from. Even peanut butter and jelly makes an appearance, although this is not your typical after school snack. Think a three layered masterpiece with your choice of jam. Sides include sweet potato fries, a can’t miss variation on the classic French fry, as well as onion petals and mozzarella sticks.

Located right on Main Street in Yardley you will find Vault Brewing. Stop by for a tasty cold beer and to hear some live jazz music. Live music is featured Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. The bar features a rotating selection of beers like IPAs, Oatmeal Stout, Coffee Stout, Pale Ale, Sweet Potato Ale, and Belgian brews. Enjoy typical bar food with your beers like Loaded Potato Wedges and Pizza. The Brown Sugar Buffalo Pizza is irresistible.

The menu may not be large but the food is tasty. It does get crowded on the weekend so you may have to stand around the bar waiting for one of the high tops in the middle of the bar to open up.
