Philly Food News Roundup August 2021

Surprisingly, August was a busy month in the Philly food scene!


Hello, foodies! Can you believe the end of August is already here? The summer went by in the blink of an eye. Not that I’m complaining as I always look forward to my favorite season—Autumn! I’m ready for pumpkin and apple everything and all of the glorious flavors of fall. I’m also hoping to take a few day trips or weekenders outside of the region and for a change of scenery.

In the meantime, check out some food news you might have missed!
