What's in Season? Fall Edition

This printable guide makes shopping for fall's freshest produce super simple.

You may be saying goodbye to your favorite summer farmers markets, but that doesn't mean you have to give up seasonal eating, too. As the temperature cools and the leaves begin to drop, local grocery stores, CSA programs, and indoor markets may begin to swap their offerings of strawberries and watermelons for fall favorites like cranberries and cauliflower. Gobbling up these fruits and vegetables that have been picked at peak ripeness will not only vary your diet throughout the year, but also ensure you're getting the harvest's optimum flavor, texture, and even nutritional value. To make shopping for seasonal fruits and vegetables as easy as pumpkin pie, print out this guide to autumn's best produce and bring it on your next trip to the grocery store.
