Our Favorite Places to Shop for a Sizzling Summer BBQ

Our Favorite Places to Shop for a Sizzling Summer BBQ

The unofficial start of summer is this weekend, and we could all use some fun after the long and arduous winter of 2021. Many of us are getting together with family and friends for the first time in quite a while, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than a backyard BBQ. While the Lehigh Valley has no shortage of places to shop for your get together, supporting a local business is always a win-win for everyone. We’ve put together a list of our favorite local markets that will help make your get together truly spectacular.

Valley Farm Market
Family owned and operated for over 40 years, Valley Farm Market is a full service grocery store that’s a local hidden gem. Their meat department is simply massive, offering almost every cut you can think of at very reasonable prices. They also have an impressive seafood dept (check out their selection of lobster tails), a deli with all the classics (the house made spinach dip is to die for), and an outstanding fresh produce selection. For those with a sweet tooth, check out their bagged candy section where you can find individually wrapped bags of classic treats and snacks.

Allentown Farmers Market
Not just your average farmers market, this Allentown favorite has been going strong since 1955. Boasting over 50 local merchants, you can find just about everything your heart desires in one amazing place. Selections include a variety of fresh fruit, vegetables, seafood, cut butchers meats, ethnic food, baked goods, and prepared foods.

Easton Public Market
The Easton Public Market is a one-stop shop if you’re looking to add some gourmet eats to your menu. After fueling up on lunch from one of their amazing vendors (summer or not, who can resist Mr. Lee’s Noodles?!) stop by Saylor’s & Co. for local and antibiotic-free prime cuts of meat and more than 40 flavors of homemade sausages. Stock up on specialty seasonal produce at the Highmark Farmstand, then complete your shopping list with a bottle of wine from Tolino Vineyards, spirits from Eight Oaks Distillery, and craft beers from Shawnee Brewing Company.

Now that you know where to shop it’s time to get your recipes together and fire up those grills! Wishing you all a happy and healthy summer season. Cheers!
