A tour of Bucks County
Last Updated on August 7, 2020 by Christopher G Mendla
The Ferry Market is in a newly renovated building (2018) across from the Logan Inn on Main Street in New Hope. We thought it was simply a collection of shops. It turned out that the Ferry Market is an Upscale Food Court.
We stopped in for an early dinner in Early August 2020. Due to the Covid restrictions, only outdoor seating was available. We easily found seats on Sunny Saturday around 5 pm. There are stations with disinfectant and towels for guests to wipe down the tables and chairs.
The sign seems to indicate a more relaxed attitude on masks. They are required but if you aren’t wearing one, they will assume it is because of medical reasons.
One shock, that should have been expected, was the number of empty stalls. Apparently the policies of the Wolf administration are killing the restaurant industry.
I opted for the French Pig for around $11. That consisted of pork, caramelized onion, gruyere cheese and aioli. The wrap was poured from batter on the griddle when I ordered. It turned out to be an excellent choice. For $1.50 more I added Tater Tots. That is somewhat of a running joke with us.
Check out their menu for more details.
My girlfriend opted for a simple turkey sandwich on rye from The Spot. She used their “Build your own” option. They have a variety of sandwiches including Hot Pastrami. Check out their site for more details.
Note – much of the information below is a bit outdated due to the effect of the Governor’s policies regarding the food and beverage industry.
We had already eaten a late lunch but we will definitely come back. The market includes: A Creperie with French Crepes, Indian Cuisine, A confectioner, pastries, coffee and more. There is a decently sized seating area. According to one of the employees, they will soon expand the market.
UPDATE Sept 2019 – some of the vendors have changed since our original posting. They are now offering happy hours with food and drink pairings.
There is a ‘Worry Wall’ where patrons can leave notes about what is weighing on their mind.
Sciascia Confections was offering samples of their specialty hot chocolate. This was arguable the best hot chocolate I’ve had. A cup was $4 and a package of the hot chocolate mix sold for $13.
For more information, check out the Ferry Market’s site.
Summary: The Ferry Market is definitely worth a visit. We plan on heading back for lunch in the near future.
