Eat Fresh, Eat Local this September

I know the week ahead of us is forecast to be HOT once again. But September is only a few days away and alas, this STEAMY summer will soon be coming to an end. There are many plants that loved the heat and humidity this summer and now is the time that we get to enjoy them.

The fruits and veggies of late August (pictured left) will still be available, as well as many new delights.  Here’s a list from the Philly Homegrown website of what you can look forward to at the market:

FRUITS:  many varieties of apples, melons, pears and plums

VEGETABLES:  basil, chard, corn, cucumber, eggplant, fall salad greens, garlic, kale, kohlrabi, okra, peppers, potatoes, pumpkins, summer and winter squash, tomatillo, tomatoes
