Seasonal Bounty at the Farmers Market


Our lazy transition from summer into fall is evident at the region’s farmers markets, where late-season peaches and plums are now sharing table space with fall crops like Bartlett pears and a mouthwatering array of apples. There’s still time to buy fruit for preserving – you’ll appreciate that homemade nectarine jam in the chilly winter months ahead – and tomato lovers should run out and get their fill of multi-colored, irresistibly fragrant heirloom tomatoes while they are still available.
