September is here. That means we’re in the process of winding down the summer to welcome the fall season. Temperature wise, some days can still be pretty hot while others are almost cool enough for a jacket. This is one of the reasons that September is a transitional month for produce. Knowing what vegetables and fruits are available will help you plan the best menus for the next few weeks. That’s why today’s post will be covering all of the best produce that should be currently in season for September around the Triangle.
