It’s finally smelling, looking and feeling like fall in Vermont, and here at the coop we could not be more excited to see the continuous abundance of local produce filling our shelves and baskets every day. Whether you are looking for guidance on the type of squash you should roast for a casual Wednesday night dinner or starting to brainstorm recipes for the big Thanksgiving meal, below are tips for cooking and baking with a few fall staples that will enhance your autumn cooking.

We Heart Local…All Year Long

Here at the Co-op we’re all about supporting local farmers and producers. While the variety on offer fluctuates throughout the year, you’d be surprised at how easy it is to incorporate local products into your diet even during the harshest of winter months. That’s why we started our We ♥ Local Recipe Contest, now in its eighth year running!

Holding onto Summer at Jericho Settlers Farm

Throughout the growing season, City Market hosts Crop Mobs at area farms. These volunteer work parties give our Member Workers an opportunity to get their hands dirty and learn more about the farms where we’re purchasing our food from. Last month, we helped with weeding at Pitchfork Farm in the Intervale and just this past Saturday, on an uncharacteristically hot fall day, we harvested potatoes at Jericho Settlers Farm in Richmond.

A New Movement Takes Root in Vermont’s Food System

Here in Vermont, we’re often recognized for our thriving local food system and commitment to the farm and food economy.
