Back to Fall with Local Seasonal Veggies

Posted by on September 14th, 2011

Now that we’ve sadly said goodbye to summer time, we can happily herald in a cooler season filled with excellent autumn vegetables. If you’re anything like me, you wait all summer for the return of the spicy, dark and gently sweet fruits and vegetables of the fall. These new veggies reopen more culinary options to warm you up on brisk mornings. They taste great and stay fresh for longer—especially if bought from a local region in your home state.

Buying local and seasonal vegetables take you to a higher level of green living. By buying pumpkins, endive, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, zucchini and cauliflower that come from places within50 milesof your home, you help keep consumption and transportation usage low. This helps conserve natural resources and reduces your carbon footprint.

So start hunting down your favorite cool weather recipes because it’s time to embrace this fall with local, seasonal veggies.
