Pick up your fruits when they’re in season and you’ll get the best flavor, nutrition and prices. Additionally, you can support your local farmers when you buy in season. We’re in a sweet spot at the end of summer and beginning of fall, so the variety is even better than usual. I love absolutely anything pumpkin and have been known to go a bit overboard with baking during this time of year.
