What's In Season: Fall Produce

My favorite time of year is just about here. We have a short 14 days until the official first day of fall and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for more permanent fall-like weather. Now that the farmer's markets are getting, in my opinion, some of the best produce of the year I thought I'd put together a little fall produce guide. Here's what you can expect at the farmer's market this month. Many of these should be available through November as well.
