What’s Fresh September 2014

Buy Fresh Buy Local simply loves this time of year. So much is in season: zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant, sweet corn, cucumbers, peppers, potatoes, onions, peas, cabbage, beets, etc.  We are also seeing the beginning of fall fruit: apples, pears, melons, even some fall raspberries.  Here’s a great recipe to celebrate the bounty and flavors of September.
