Eat Your Way Through Summer & Early Fall

We are in the height of summer and enjoying every minute of it all while keeping our eyes on the upcoming festivals and food pop-ups that will have you eating your way through Delaware County into the fall. These seasonal events and restaurants will allow you to make your way through the county with food as your guide. 

This time of year provides the freshest produce and meats, all well cared for on generationally owned or newly formed farms. There has been an uptick in small veggies producers in the area, making the farmers’ markets a fantastic place to stock your fridge for the week. Below are food oriented festivals and unique restaurants to enjoy this summer and fall.
