Fall Starts Today! What’s in Season?

Its Fall, what is in season?

Fall officially starts today (9-22-2017) in the Northern Hemisphere!

When planning what you’re going to cook, an important thing to pay attention to is what fruits and vegetables are in season.

Buying produce that’s in season will not only put fresh fruits and vegetables on your plate that are at the peak of their flavor, it’ll also save you money since it costs growers and distributors less to get it to your grocery store.

  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Beets
  • Bell Peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels Sprouts
