It's the first Monday of October and we have the list of what seasonal fruits and veggies to pick up. October is the start of the root veggie season. Vegetables like eggplants, beets, radishes, sweet potato, winter squash are at their peak this month. Surprisingly, fruits like melons are also at their prime this month. Watermelon, Cantaloupe, and Honeydew are often associated with the summer but this month is the time to grab melons if you see them.
The October harvest fruits and vegetables are the perfect bridge from the lighter summer foods to heartier, warmer winter meals. The root vegetables add plenty of vibrant color, delicious flavors, and substance to meals.
Take advantage of this October and make it COLORFUL and TASTY!
