PHILADELPHIA (CBS) –  Dozens of South Jersey restaurants are participating in “Fall Harvest Week,” a restaurant week in which you get four courses for $35.00 at any of the participating eateries.

“Our menu is pretty much about 100 percent with local farmers,” says Anthony Iannone, vice president of South Jersey Hot Chefs.

What are some of the seasonal items that we’ll see on the menus?

“Butternut squash, you’re gonna be seeing fresh yams, there’s still some corn around, some eggplant, there’s fall zucchini, and squash.”

Meanwhile, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society is also celebrating local farmers as it hosts its inaugural “PHeaSt” festival, next Friday, October 19th.

It’s a fundraiser for the City Harvest program.

“Our City Harvest program started in 2006, and since then we’ve raised over 180,000 pounds of fresh organic produce which helps feed over 1,000 needs families every week during the growing season,” explains senior vice president Kate Wilhelm Chimicles.

Meyers says reality chef Bethenny Frankel is the event headliner.   I had to ask: how much will she get paid?

“It’s less than $100,000, but not far from that,” Meyers admits.
