Today was unseasonably warm and it must’ve triggered something in me to head downtown to the farmer’s market. I have not been there for awhile and wanted to see what they had for the winter.
The produce section was a bit smaller than in warmer weather but still offered many varieties of fresh produce. Obviously, some was shipped in (strawberries, summer squash, etc) but I tried to go for the seasonal stuff like root veggies and dark greens.
Stocked up on local dark honey for baking and cooking. I NEVER want to be without honey in the house
Lots of citrus offerings- I’ve been eating oranges like crazy for Vitamin C to fight off any potential colds/flu. Check out my chicken soup recipe for colds/flu here!
This is a great time of year to continue eating root vegetables- use them in soups, stews or simply roast them and enjoy the natural sweetness
What are your favorite winter vegetables?
