This is the month where summer meets fall. Along with it comes the best of both worlds. Whether you want to stock up on hot season favorites before they fade out or get a jump start on cool season crops–you can have it both ways in September. We suggest you indulge in the cornucopia.
Incoming: More and various apples and pears of many types–including more certified organic options. We will also start to see lots of habanero and colored sweet peppers coming in soon. Gradually you’ll see more winter squash varieties like spaghetti, delicata, acorn, butternut and more. And similarly, we will begin to carry sweet potatoes and fingerling potatoes too.
Outgoing: Peaches, nectarines, watermelon, cantaloupes, and other summer fruits are just about finished. Summer squash and maybe even zucchini will start to slow down as the month progresses too. Eggplant will hang around as long as we keep getting some warm days, but that of course will not last forever. Until then, enjoy September as it is truly one of the great produce months of the year.
