Like the Sirens of Greek Mythology, in these dog days of summer,* nothing is more tempting than our Roadside 'Sirens'...those abundantly green temptresses stacked with produce from local farms, luring us in with ripe, juicy fruit and trophy-worthy veggies...

Delco may be one of the PA's most populated counties by square foot -- but we've got soil to die for and lots of 'sirens' singing like a choir! 

We've compiled a pretty good list of Delco's produce stands and garden markets, and you can find them in Destination Delco's Farm-To-Table Guide.

We confess, we're a little 'corny' about our produce... and you will be, too!

Load the family in the car and get a little less pre-packaged...with so many local produce options, there's no need to plow a field, churn your own butter or butcher your own meat. Bring the bounty of our local farms to your dinner table this month.  Several places even offer the option of actually picking your own right off the bush or out the tree :)

You can also check out Delco's Farm-to-Table dining options by visiting our Restaurant Guide. Then click on the Farm-to-Table tab at the top of the page.

*PAWS to consider how these steamy summer days got their canine name:
“The dog days of summer” are considered to be the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere.

Early Europeans mapped out the sky's stars (now called constellations) seeing images of a bear, twins, a bull and others -- including dogs, (Canis Major and Canis Minor).

The brightest of the stars in Canis Major is Sirius which also happens to be the brightest star in the night sky between July and early September!
