The leaves are turning which makes us excited for fall produce.
There’s plenty of it, thanks to our hardworking farmers.
Coming into season right now are Delicata Squash. If you haven’t roasted squash before, we encourage you to give it a try. Bring out all the natural sweetness by slicing open length wise and scraping out the seeds. Douse in olive oil, salt, pepper and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Roast in a 425-degree oven until soft and caramelized. Of course, there are plenty of ways to enjoy this versatile squash but sometimes simple is best!
This week is South Barlow Berries final market of summer. Now’s your chance to get their last berries of the season. Plan on making that last batch of jam or freeze for winter!
