Fall social post

By: Delayna Fitzgerald

From tanks to turtle necks, flip flops to boots and watermelon to Pumpkin. Yes, we’re talking fall! For all you local shoppers and seasonal eaters out there, you know that eating fruits and veggies in their peak harvesting season means you’re eating produce that is super fresh, local, and high quality. You also probably know that all good things must come to an end… until next year that is!

So even though our summer food favorites are coming to a close it’s time to get excited for fall’s delectable food selections. We’ll miss you watermelon, but let’s all give a warm welcome to the return on my long lost friend…..Pumpkin spice. It’s good to see you buddy :’)
