9 Winter Farm Markets to Shop & Eat Local within Bucks County

Don't let cold weather get in the way of enjoying farm fresh produce, baked goods, and more!

From applesauce to zucchini, Bucks County has it all. The county’s rich, agricultural heritage shines in the summer months with markets, farm tours, and pick-your-own events galore! But what about winter? 

 

As we all know, it is equally important to eat healthy food and support our local farmers during the cold, winter months—perhaps even more so. Lucky for us, Bucks County has a vibrant, local, food system that never goes into hibernation. From the biggest farmers markets to the smallest roadside stands, we’re making it easy for you to eat fresh, shop local, and support our farming community right from your own backyard—year round!

 

Here are our top, farm-fresh picks to get you through the frosty, winter days.

Pro-tip: While usually pet-friendly at their spring/summer market, their winter market venue (The Middletown Grange Fairgrounds) does not permit dogs, so you’ll have to leave the fur-baby at home.
