A new season brings a refreshing wave of farm fresh produce to our kitchens and dining room tables. Fall offers some of the best flavors of the season.

As the air changes in Kentucky, so does our agriculture. This makes trips to farmers markets an exciting opportunity to try new varieties of fruits and vegetables. In addition, this season’s produce offers a wide variety that is great for oven roasting, as many of them are root vegetables.

Below is a list of available produce in Kentucky in the fall:

  • Apples
  • Beets
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Greens
  • Lettuce

Be sure to check out your local farmers market to stock up on favorites, try some new fruits and vegetables, and support your community’s local farmers.
