September: At The Market

I heard a rumor that persimmons are on their way back into the markets in the next few weeks – yay! That being said, it officially means summer produce is making a Farmers Market grand exit as the wave of fall delights start to wash in. Sure, technically it IS STILL SUMMER (especially with the 100 degree temps lingering about – jeez) and it means time to gather up the end of the season produce and get the fall garden planted but it also stands for the seasonal change into autumn. If you haven’t tried persimmons or are looking for recipe inspiration for these sweet little treats check here and here  — they really are amazing — more persimmon recipes to come later this month. Wonderful greens, butternut squashes, sweet potatoes and maybe even a little pumpkin or two will appear over the next few weeks.

What to expect at the Farmer’s Markets (in and around Texas) this month:

  • gaga garlic
  • picked-a peppers
  • figgy figs
  • root-y turnips
  • versatile tomatoes
  • intriguing eggplant
  • outrageous okra
  • sweet corn
  • crunchy carrots
  • piquant persimmons
  • peppery baby arugula
  • beautiful basil
  • sumptuous watermelon
  • scrumptious melons
  • fresh salad greens and lettuce
  • bok-y bok choy
  • brocci broccoli and cauliflowers
  • weepy onions
  • buttery butternut squash
  • summery squash
  • popping pumpkins (may start to appear)
  • crispy pears
  • creamy sweet and red potatoes
  • beautiful beets
  • hearty chard, kale, mustard greens
