We’re in the midst of Hanukkah now, and whether or not you celebrate the Festival of Lights, you might draw inspiration from some of its traditional dishes as you do your farmers tailgate market shopping this week.
When thinking about the colors of autumn, it is typical to think of fall foliage. But, the fall produce at area farmers tailgate markets is a splendid array of tints and hues that should not be passed by!
Things are cooling down at area farmers tailgate markets. Most area farms experienced frost conditions this past week. Frost can mean trouble for some crops, but for others it is a welcome occurrence — it can sweeten some vegetable varieties, and who doesn’t like their daily dose of vegetables to be sweeter?
Despite the recent snow, area farmers tailgate markets are as full as ever with delicious and colorful fare. The fall produce is abundant including squash, roots, and greens. Some summer veggies are also still around, such as tomatoes and peppers, not to mention all of the breads, cheeses and other amazing goods available at markets every week.
