Best Farmers' Markets In Pennsylvania
Where can I pick my own food in Pennsylvania?
While picking your own fruits and vegetables guarantees you are getting the freshest produce possible, not all of us have gardens in our backyards. Luckily, some farms around the Keystone State offer pick-your-own. Barefoot Farm in Dover is a wonderful place to take the kids and pick strawberries, raspberries, and pumpkins when in season. Brecknock Orchard in Mohnton allows visitors to pick strawberries, rhubarb, and lettuce as well as flowers while Triple B Farms of Monongahela has a wide variety of produce ripe to pick.
Are there any farm-to-table restaurants in Pennsylvania?
With the number of farms around the state, Pennsylvania certainly has its fair share of farm-to-table restaurants. Going to one of these restaurants almost always guarantees you’ll be eating food made with the freshest ingredients that have been locally grown. Located in Hazelton, Top of the 80s offers fine dining using produce from local farms. Not only is the food delicious, but the views of the Conyngham Valley are absolutely breathtaking. Bittersweet Cafe of Farmington uses herbs and other produce that are grown on-site while the meat is sourced locally.
What are the most popular foods in Pennsylvania?
Some foods can only be found in Pennsylvania while others can be found elsewhere but are best-known in the state. While pierogies, a type of filled dumpling, are found all over the country, the state’s Polish roots have made the food famous here. Halushki, another Polish dish, is made with thick noodles, pork, and lots of garlic. If you’re hungry for dessert, try some shoofly pie, a delicious molasses crumb cake that’s associated with the Pennsylvania Dutch.
