Snow in the forecast for this weekend?! Say it isn’t so! I’m guessing it was an early April Fools’ Day prank. Seriously, we are supposed to get an Arctic blast (it’s New England and Canada that might get snow), but we’ll just get rain and cooler temps.
So, you can happily get out and about this weekend! Here are our foodie picks for Friday through Sunday.
1. Friday Night at the Market
Friday, 3 pm – 8 pm, Stockton Market, 19 Bridge St., Stockton
Although not all vendors are on hand at the Stockton Market on Friday night, you can still pick up your choice of dinner, especially if you’re in the mood for pizza, BBQ or seafood. And of course, sweets for desserts!
Here are a few of the vendors on hand: Market Pizza, Metropolitan Seafood, Sweet Melissa, More than Q (BBQ), Manny’s Meats, Sciascia Confections, Juice Matters, Camillia and Coffea, and Highland Gourmet.
2. Pizza Brunch
Saturday, 11:30 am – 2 pm, Liberty Hall Pizza, 243 N Union St, Lambertville
As anyone in their 20’s knows, pizza for breakfast is a thing. How awesome is it that Liberty Hall Pizza in Lambertville is turning it into an acceptable brunch food? Yep, it’s really quite awesome.
This Saturday, the Neapolitan pizzeria will begin serving Brunch Pizza from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays only.
The Brunch Pizza consists of a base pizza of eggs, salt & pepper, fresh garlic and olive oil. Diners choose their favorite cheese (Fresh Mozzarella, Cheddar, Gruyere, Goat, Ricotta); one meat (Italian Fennel Sausage, Taylor Pork Roll, Guanciale (pork cheek), Calabrese Salami or Pancetta); and a vegetable (Red Onions, Italian Long Hots, Artichokes, Caramelized Onions, Sun Dried Tomatoes, Baby Spinach, Mushrooms, Roasted Red Peppers, Cherry Tomatoes, Rosemary Potatoes).
Brunch pizzas are $17, and additional toppings run $2-$3 each.
3. Eat This Tasting Event
Pair your wine tasting this weekend with sweet jams and marmalades, made with all locally produced ingredients. Eat This of Bucks County will share its treats at Villa Milagro Vineyards from 1 pm to 4 pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

4. Sunday at the Farmers’ Market

Start your weekend at the market – and finish it that way too! On Sunday, the Hunterdon Land Trust Winter Farmers’ Market is open from 11 am to 1 pm in Flemington.
Featuring about a dozen vendors, the market has something for everyone: organic vegetables, meat, chicken, pork, honey, bread, locally roasted coffee, native seeds, wool and alpaca products and more.
