Blueberry bush at Tangerini's

A pint of fresh blueberries.
The hot and sunny days of summer mean it's time to pick blueberries! There is no shortage of places to pick here in New England. Eat Up New England and family recently went on a picking spree at Tangerini's Farm in Millis, Massachusetts. Pick them by the pint or by the quart. Fresh blueberries are so much better than the ones sitting in the store. Customers can also pick strawberries, sunflowers and pumpkins during the year.

Tangerini's also has an ice cream shop, serving a variety of hard flavors. It's the perfect treat after picking blueberries in the hot sun. I'd also recommend one of their root beer floats.

If that wasn't enough, they also serve breakfast and lunch at The Farmer's Porch. Egg sandwiches, blueberry pancakes, donuts, bagels and other pastries fill the breakfast menu. For lunch, there's a blueberry feta salad, flatbread, burgers, wraps, fried chicken sandwich and more. Beer and wine is also served, along with cold drinks like iced coffee and iced tea.

Mushroom Truffle Pizza

Blue Square Pizza
Hopkinton, MA
There's a new pizza shop that's getting a lot of buzz in Hopkinton. Blue Square Pizza recently opened up on Main Street. It specializes in gourmet Detroit-style pizza with a sourdough crust. Detroit-style pizza is rectangular and has a crispy, mouth-watering crust. There are a bunch of house specialties to choose from like mushroom truffle, summer veggie, sausage and red onion. Blue Square also offers traditional New York-style pizzas, along with salads, wings and breadsticks. But the Detroit pizza is the way to go. It's so good and so popular, that they often sell out early in the afternoon, so place your order early!

The Jenerator

Bushel N Peck's Grafton location

Tons of drinks, chips and frozen entrees

Mac & cheese, kebobs and lasagna fill one of their showcases.

Bushel N Peck
Grafton, Clinton, Worcester & Westboro Massachusetts

Bring along a healthy appetite at the Bushel N Peck, a deli with a number of locations across Massachusetts. Eat Up New England visited their Grafton spot and was wowed by the selection.

There are a number of "creative combos" sandwiches to choose from. I ordered the "Jenerator." This large sandwich on half of an Italian bread comes with ham, bacon, swiss cheese, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, mayo and honey mustard. It's fantastic. You can also custom order a sandwich of your own, with a variety of meats, breads, spreads and topping to choose from. There are salads, soups, wraps, vegetarian options and hot sandwiches, including a Pork Belly BLT made with thick cut bacon, melted cheddar, lettuce and tomatoes with Sriracha aioli. 

Be sure to check out their showcases which are filled with entrees like meat lasagna, kebobs, mac & cheese, chicken and a number of cold pasta salads. They even had a fried cheesecake when we visited. There's a seemingly endless selection of drinks and chips. You can also get frozen pizzas, pastas and more to go. Another bonus: as prices skyrocket everywhere, I thought Bushel N Peck's prices were very fair.
