Locally, we are lucky that farm-fresh finds are never far. Why?
“Our area has some of the best soils in the world. You can taste it in our local produce. The cool nights help the starches turn to sugar, making signature fall crops like apples, brussels sprouts and winter squash sweet,” said Tim Bartlett, general manager of Lexington Co-op Markets.
Plus, the trip for your ingredients can become part of the fun. Remember: Visitors must follow all enforced safety guidelines, such as wearing a mask and maintaining appropriate social distance while shopping.
