Oh October, there is more to you than candy corn and haunted houses.
There is a whole new crop of in season fruits and veggies!
Why look for things that are “in season” in your region?
- You’re reducing your carbon footprint by not having food trucked cross country.
- You’re supporting local, small farmers
- Food is higher in nutrients if it hasn’t been sitting in a truck for a few weeks
- It’s being picked at the perfectly ripened point- so it’ll taste better!
If you want to check what exactly is in season in your state, check out Epicurious’ Seasonal Map and get some great recipes for ‘em while you’re at it!
Bottom line: there is far more than candy corn and snack size Twix in season… go for that candy from the ground instead.
