We believe eliminating the waste within our food supply chain vital to creating a sustainable food system that benefits, farmers, eaters, and the planet. When farmers grow crops that are not bought they lose money. When suppliers (like Philly Foodworks) purchase food that is not bought by customers it increases their costs. Both of these increase the price that the farmer and the supplier need to charge for their products. Add...

We've been talking about summer fruit for a couple of weeks now. Well we wouldn't be able to do that without Weaver’s Orchard in Morgantown, PA. Ed Weaver and family provide Philly Foodworks with the best summer fruits available from berries, to cherries, nectarines & peaches to apples.

Weaver‘s Orchard began in 1932 when Daniel Weaver purchased the property in Bucks County that has become the fruit wonderland that we love. Wea...

Yes, Yes you can...

Who wants to heat up the house by using the oven when its 85 plus degrees outside? That's where the grill comes in! Of course, the usual favorites come to mind; burgers, chicken, portobello mushrooms, steaks and more. We have some other thoughts in mind of some things you might not necessarily think to grill!


Peaches - Sweet or Savory. Grill halved peaches to pair with pork chops, top with cinnamon, brown su...

Sometimes we end up with more fruit than we know what to do with. Whether we found a great deal, picked too much at an orchard or just overstocked, there are many reasons we might have to much fruit on our hands. Is there such a thing? One of the fruits I find myself with more than I can use at a given time is cherries. I envision baking and making delicious jam but get caught up with summer. Sometimes it's just too warm in th...

Summer's bounty is here! The temperatures are rising, we're possibly getting more rain than we want, but things are looking up and starting to balance out in the fields. The farmers at Honey Brook Harvest are harvesting more and more variety of produce each week. With this good harvest, we're adding more and more to the selection on the market. 

We're excited about the new summer offerings and quickly realized that storing some...

Summertime brings along with it bursting farms & gardens. In those are fresh herbs! You'll see or start seeing rosemary, mint, thyme, parsley, chives, sage & more. Fresh herbs are a must in my household! I get overly excited about fresh herbs which sometimes leads to me needing to find ways to use the herbs so they don't go to waste in the abyss of my kitchen. 

Some of the most common uses, of course, are in cooking: marina...

What's the deal with strawberries, blueberries & raspberries? 

These berries are a sign warm weather is here and that new fruits & veggies will be flooding us in no time! The unofficial start to summer at PFW is when strawberries have arrived. Very similar but yet very different! Let's break it down a bit...

Strawberries | These are actually not a berry! They're actually an accessory fruit - the seeds on strawberries are actuall...

Strawberries are one of the fruits that keep us on the edge of our seats. Once they make their sweet arrival we know it's only a matter of a few short weeks before they are gone again. Let's face it nothing really compares to a fresh, in season strawberry; that juicy, deep red sweetness is what we long for after a cold winter. 

One thing you can do to extend their season is preserving. Most people think this is only jam bu...

The Salad Days newsletter is sent out to keep everyone in the loop about the bigger projects and happenings are Philly Foodworks. We send out a printed copy with orders, email a digital version and have begun doing a post here that can be linked back to!

First, we want to say thank you!

Without your support we wouldn't be able to help our farmers and the food system. 

Next up we wanted to share that we've improved our home delive...

These snazzy little greens have been used by fancy chefs for years. Their vibrant color and flavor make them excellent garnishes, but they are so much more than just a pretty presentation.

Microgreens are miniature plants of greens, herbs or vegetables. Their germination period is just 1-2 weeks until they are ready to be used. They come in many varieties, almost any plant that is fully edible can be made micro!  We will have m...
