What to Buy at Farmers Markets in September

We’ve come to the end. Summer may still be going strong in our hearts (and in our forecasts), but September is when many neighborhood farmers markets begin to close up shop. Nevertheless, we’re on a quest to enjoy this month to the fullest, and that includes mapping out our trips to the markets while we still can.

To get the freshest produce, fill your bags with these in-season items.


September In-Season Produce:

  • apples
  • beans (green)
  • black-eyed peas
  • cantaloupe
  • cucumbers
  • eggplant
  • muscadines
  • okra
  • peppers
  • pumpkin
  • sweet corn
  • sweet potatoes
  • tomatoes
