704797f0-29c1-4102-b19f-ff1480b9b109The leaves are changing and the temperature is cooling – it’s official, autumn is here, and so is all of your favorite fall produce!

Tomorrow pick up your apples, pumpkins, gourds and squash. Plus you can still get plenty of tomatoes, onions, garlic and much more. Our local apples make for the best candied apples and apple pies, and of course you’ll need pumpkins to make your spooky jack-o-lanterns, pumpkin pies and baked pumpkin seeds!

There are only three market days left this year, with the last day on October 31, so stock up while you can! Get it all in one stop at the Falls Park Farmers Market tomorrow, 8am to 1pm.

With more than 2,500 varieties of apples grown in the US, you’re sure to find at least one that pleases your palette. An apple tree takes 4-5 years before it starts producing apples. That means these treats are worth waiting for!

Calm down! The nutrients and vitamins in celery are thought to provide a good night’s sleep and a calming effect, so next time you’re searching for a midnight snack – head straight for this crunchy stalk.

Sweet Potatoes are a great snack – all of them! You can eat the whole plant including the leaves and stems. As a part of the Clean 15, these tubers have a potential exposure to toxins that is lower than other produce.
