Take advantage of an amazing autumn harvest
Discover what’s fresh in fall
There’s something incredibly special about autumn that makes us fall in love with this season year after year. We cherish the crisp, earthy nature of the air following the heat of summer. Bearing witness to the transformation of the trees as their leaves harmoniously shift in hue and create watercolor-like landscapes is simply breathtaking. Observing an autumn leaf delicately dancing in the wind as it falls downward to the ground below never gets old.
Most of all, we lust after the hoards of wholesome fruits and vegetables that are harvested during this dreamy time of year. Hearty, healthy cruciferous veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, turnips and Brussels sprouts are in season and are great sources of folate, carotenoids, phytonutrients, and vitamins K and C. And of course, we must mention the incredible selection of nutrient-dense “winter squash” harvested in late-summer and fall, which are full of fiber and offer a fair source of several vitamins and minerals. Superfoods such as cranberries, ginger, sweet potatoes and garlic are packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, are also their freshest in autumn. Simply amazing!
Fall goodies we can’t wait to get our hands on include:
- An array of squash (acorn, buttercup and butternut to name a few)
- Brussels sprouts
- Butter lettuce
- Hearts of palm
- Jalapeño peppers
- Key limes & kumquats
- Passion fruit
- Sunflower seeds (we adore them over salads)
- Sweet potatoes
- Swiss chard
