Located in the heart of Dublin is a Bucks County hidden gem called The Square. The building was built back in the 1920s and was originally the Dublin Pants Factory. It then grew into a facility that provided a place where small businesses could start and grow their business. The building’s most recent renovation took place in 2019 and lead to the birth of “The Square” and now is home to roughly 30 small businesses.
Among these businesses are an excellent selection of dining & shopping locations that make The Square a must-visit when on vacation in Central Bucks County. Some of them are:
Makers is a handmade market run by The Craftery that provides a space where local artists and crafters can showcase their work. The store holds a wide variety of hand crafted and locally made gifts ranging from self-care products, honey, jewelry, pottery, home décor and more!
Farm to Toast, Bucks County’s very first gourmet toast bar, was born out of a “deep passion for healthy food, community and coffee.” They believe that they have been able to form a deeper connection with the community during this time where conscious healthy eating has become so important. Farm to Toast specializes in various toast recipes (made from Bucks County’s own Nord Bread Sourdough Bakery), smoothies, bowls and coffee.
