October: At The Market

by evh on October 3, 2013


Kale, Butternut Squash and Beet lovers unite at the Farmers Markets this month. In addition to glorious pumpkins, sweet bell and hot chile peppers, and sweet potatoes there is plenty to celebrate with the good bouts of rain that we’ve had (of course there’s always room for more) but we will take what we can get, right? This month I will be headed out to one of my favorite markets –– Lone Star Farmers Market –– for a cooking demo to celebrate my NEW From Market to Plate with Local Savour: Autumn Edition eBook due out SOON so stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, enjoy the magic of the cooler mornings, longer evenings and smells of baking autumn treats wafting in the air.

What to expect at the farmer’s markets this month:

  • poppy pumpkins
  • red, golden and candy-cane beets
  • jolly green beans
  • root-y radishes
  • ambrosial zucchini
  • intriguing eggplant
  • sweet and crispy apples
  • hot, hot, hot peppers
  • sweet bell peppers
  • piquant persimmons
  • peppery baby arugula
  • fresh salad greens and spinach
  • mustardy mustard greens, beet greens and collards
  • popular kale
  • vampire-ous garlic
