Eating seasonally is not only financially clever (things that are in season grow plentifully, so they’re cheaper at grocery stores), it’s also healthier and tastier, as fruits and veggies that are out of season are typically grown with chemicals and shipped from far away. Besides, when you buy local produce in season, you’re supporting your local farmers and sustainable farming practices.

Through fall and winter, keep an eye out for these seasonal fruits and veggies at your grocery store or market stand: apples, arugula, beans, beets, carrots, eggplant, greens (spinach, collard greens), lettuce, okra, onions, pecans, red and green chile, root vegetables (potatoes, parsnips, rutabagas), pumpkins and winter squash.

(Besides fruits and veggies, local products like eggs, meat, dairy and honey are always in season.)

To make sure you’re always getting the freshest, best local produce (and to save yourself a trip to the market), consider joining a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, which distributes a weekly box of produce to its members. Most CSAs stop distributing at about this time of year, but some (like Skarsgard Farms) operate year-round.
