If you’ve been shopping at the markets the past couple of weeks, you’ve seen the changes already: Farmers have exhausted their tomato* and eggplant reserves, greens have gotten thicker and darker, and pumpkins are EVERYWHERE.
Pull out your boots, your sweaters, and your chili recipes, it’s finally Fall.
What’s in season right now? Hearty squash like butternut and spaghetti squash; greens like kale, collards, and mustard greens; ginger, turnips, sweet potatoes, beans, carrots, and parsnips; and the official gourd of Halloween, the pumpkin. With the shorter, colder days ahead, we’re all calling on our crock pots and comfort food go-to’s, so we ask you – what recipes do you rely on to stay satisfied?
Share any seasonal recipe** in the comments, and you’ll be entered to win a market basket loaded with fresh produce from participating South of the James vendors.
We’ll announce the winner on Wednesday, October 30 – Good luck!
Here are 5 Fall recipes from RVA Bloggers to get you inspired:
