Fresh from the Farm at Newtown Farmers Market

by Andrew Risch

Aug 11, 2017

Where do you go when looking for the freshest meals and produce? There is only one place that can meet all of your needs: the local farmers market.

I have lived in Bucks County for a while now. I have seen restaurants and stores come and go, but one thing remains constant: the Newtown Farmers Market. Situated in the heart of downtown Newtown, Pa., the Farmers Market is open Thursday–Sunday and offers a variety of options from seafood to barbecue.

A co-worker and I recently went to lunch at the farmers market and took a look around. A pretzel stall, fresh seafood market, a barbecue pit and gyro shop are just a few of the options.. The many dairy, meat and produce sections scattered around the building provide eye candy while walking the aisles.

I decided to grab a pretzel from the stand, and I can say with 100 percent certainty this was the best soft pretzel I’ve ever had. After the pretzel, I decided to get my entrée from the seafood market. Being a seafood snob, I was hesitant to go with the clam strips and lobster bisque, but I let curiosity get the best of me and ordered both.

Unfortunately, the bisque was not the best I’ve had, and the clam strips came pre-breaded, a downside, but overall the food was palatable. Trying new cuisine and seeing new things make up half of the dining experience.
