Eat Local All Winter Long

Eat Local All Winter Long


THE GROWING SEASON MAY BE behind us, but there still is plenty of good local eating to be had in the winter months ahead thanks to the farms, markets and CSAs extending their season through the coldest months of the year.

This is the time when root vegetables reign supreme. Among the bushels of vibrant red beets, sweet carrots and purple potatoes, winter market-goers can find tender spinach, nutrient-rich winter greens, even corn and other tender vegetables (flash frozen in season). There will certainly be crisp apples as well as other fruits preserved (frozen, jammed or jellied) along with apple cider, maple syrup, honey, artisanal cheeses, breads, eggs, meats, dairy and even seafood.

CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.” Consumers pay a subscription fee in advance, then receive a changing weekly supply of the farm’s harvest. It’s a way for consumers to buy directly from a farmer in their community and to eat seasonally—even in winter.
