Fall – What’s In Season??

There’s just a few short days left until…I know, I know.   Summer is coming to an end and we move towards the end of the year.  But it’s not all bad news!

 If you check out the list below of the goodies making their appearances at our Farmer’s Markets, we can actually jump for joy!

There is nothing to pine for when we can make an apple-pear pie, or tummy-warming soups and stews.  Our potted apple trees in the back yard have all been picked and a few will make it into a salad with local hazelnuts from Agazziz.  Oh, and then there’s quince.  Quince tarte tatin anybody?  When cooked they not only smell like roses but take on the colour of roses I think!  And then there’s winter squash like butternut and acorn, perhaps turned into ravioli or gnocchi.  Doesn’t sound too shabby does it?

Enjoy yourself, carve a pumpkin, bake an apple crisp!  Can’t you just smell that cinnamon!


  • Apples, beets, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, celery, garlic, grapes, hazelnuts, herbs, kale, leeks, onions, parsnips, pears, peppers, potatoes, pumpkins, quince, winter squash, turnips, walnuts, chanterelles and other wild mushrooms.  Like I said earlier…not too shabby!
