Schober Crepes @ Charlie's

Have you ever heard of a Schober crepe? How about roasted pork “Charlie” style with teriyaki. What’s that on top - a few Schober vanilla bourbon peaches and the house made teriyaki sauce. And with peaches in season, expect some creations dressed with Schober Orchards vanilla-bourbon peaches, salted caramel and candied pecans.  Schober’s is a fourth generation family farm, a refreshing step back in time and if you're Charlie, from Charlie's Crepes in Merchantville, where you'll find the freshest local produce in season. As you drive past the lush rows of fruit trees on 275 beautiful acres of preserved farmland, you may see our workers hand-picking the fruit during harvest. And depending on the season, you'll see baskets of colorful, delicious apples, peaches or nectarines as you enter their lot. As Charlie says, “If you’re using good quality local ingredients, you feel good.”  Dining hours are: Wednesday and Friday 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., 4:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.; Thursday 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.; Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., 4:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.; and, Sunday 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Best Burger in the County

There's a reason why nearly every restaurant — from fast to fine — has a burger on its menu. It's because they're universally adored. It's the same reason I ate 44 burgers at 44 restaurants in the past two months — to find the absolute juiciest, most flavorful version in each county in the Garden State. The following burgers are so good that even after eating 44 burgers in a very short time, I'm still dreaming about them. The Blue Monkey Burger from Blue Monkey Tavern in Merchantville is Camden County's best burger.

A Town Staple

July's Feature Buisness of the month McFarlan's Market Merchantville. The remake of the original corner store, reopened in May 2010, transformed the old Philadelphia fruit market back to its original name with a new look. The service is great, the food is great, and all the employees are phenomenal! It's definitely worth stopping by for a coffee, a sandwich, or other grocery needs because McFarlan's never disappoints. This corner store is a town staple. Small-business owners love what they do, and they play an important role in supporting local communities - from contributing hometown resources to providing meeting places for residents and neighbors. When it comes to showing your support for small businesses, it’s important to do so. Everything from the local market to the clothing boutique relies on the support of loyal customers to keep its doors open, and when you spend money at a small business, you’ll gain plenty of wonderful benefits!
