Day 345–What’s Fresh at the Market

Brussel sprouts

The weather here in central North Carolina is having a case of indecision. Although we have had some chilly days, most of December has been in the 70s. I’m not complaining, mind you, but it is a little hard to get in the holiday spirit when you’re wearing shorts and a t-shirt. And flipflops.

One of the wonderful side effects of this warm weather is that our farmers are still harvesting lots of great vegetables! Here is what’s fresh this week!

  • Apples
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Lettuce
  • Kale
  • Collards
  • Bok choi
  • Carrots
  • Onions
  • Pecans
  • Sweet potatoes (orange and white)
  • Greenhouse tomatoes
  • Winter squash–acorn, butternut, pattypan
  • Beets
  • Turnips
  • Rutabegas
  • Radish

Have a wonderful week and don’t forget to support your local farmers as you make your holiday meal plans!

  1. I love Brussels sprouts!!!!! So good. I am complaining about the weather, though. This is my official complaint. I hate warm Christmas weather. But I’ll probably like the power bill, so… I guess it’s a draw. And I’m eating soup anyway.

  2. Cuantas cool…! parecen que forman fila ! como en la escuela que pronto llega a su fin ..y benditas vacaciones por venir..! Pero muy deliciosas en ensaladas , y sobre todo en pantalones cortos y top ! en lo personal , me gusta rociarle jugo de limóm..!

    Gracias por el post , es genial..!
