Fall Shopping at the Farmers Market
Fall is harvest time, and now is the time to take advantage of the bounty. Depending on your area, the months of October and November are ideal for hitting the local farmers markets for fresh, local produce to create delicious fall soups, stews or other dishes. For those who love canning, now is the time to create preserves from these late-season fruits and veggies.
In some areas, fresh produce is available all year round, but even if it isn't in your area, there is still time to take advantage of early fall harvests. Shopping at farmer's markets for local, in-season fruits and vegetables is not only healthy, but it's also budget-friendly and good for the local economy.
Some of the delicious produce available from the months of October through December includes carrots, radishes, onions, squash, eggplant, broccoli, spinach, sweet potatoes and more. You'll also find pomegranates, papaya and citrus fruits as well. A lot depends on where you live, but if you are looking to eat fresh, healthy and cheap, local produce is your best bet. Not only that, but when you shop local farms, you are getting higher quality foods that are richer in nutrients and less likely to be treated with harmful chemicals. And, you are supporting the farmers in your community. So head on down to the farmers market and see what's available.
