There’s a lot going on this month, so I am listing some of it below with links for more information on each (some require prepaid registration). Some of these events benefit a good cause, others are just for fun and entertainment.
One sad note, in spite of a successful first year, the Forrestal Village Friday Fresh Market has ended its second season earlier than planned due to low attendance this year. But our other area markets are still going strong, so remember save time for them. Fall is a great time for the farmers markets, and it’s cool enough to linger! AND, THIS JUST IN- The West Windsor Community Farmers Market will continue through the winter! It will take place on the second Satruday of each month, December through April, at an indoor location at the Windsor Athletic Club on Clarksville Road, with ample parking. The winter markets will be slightly shorter than the summer ones, running from 10:00am to 1:00pm. Check their website and sign up for their newsletter for further details as things develop.
September 11 brings another Food Truck Friday event to busy little Hopewell, home of so much good food every day of the week. This event is at the old train station.
September 12 & 13 – Apple Days festival at Terhune Orchards, followed by Fall Family Fun Weekends into October.
September 13 – Everyone is invited to Montgomery Township’s first Family Fun Day on September 13 at the Princeton Airport. Other events include nature walks and more, to say nothing of the Saturday Farmers Market.
September 16 – Preserving and serving tomatoes class at Jammin’ Crepes with Master Food Preserver Kim Rizk. After you learn to can, you’ll be treated to a tomato preserves and cheese pairing featuring Cherry Grove Farm cheeses (and check their website for other “cheesey” events!)
September 18 – The Frog & The Peach hosts “The Bitter and The Sweet” A Garden Tasting of Aperitifs and Digestifs with Jeremy Fisher, and other fall events, listed here.
September 20 – Princeton Hunger Banquet. Building hunger awareness en plein air, what you’ll eat is the luck of the draw at this event.
September 24-26 – A Just Food conference at the Princeton Theological Seminary brings together church leaders and interested members of the public for an essential conversation about food justice, sustainable agriculture, food insecurity, and innovative ways to change the way we relate to food. (Registration fee includes some meals and a field trip to their 21-acre sustainable farm – it’s a Just Field!)
September 27 – Epicurean Palette at Grounds For Sculpture. Support the arts while eating (and drinking) well at our area’s premier tasting event – their 15th year!
