It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

I love everything about fall…not only am I super excited about baseball playoff season (go Phillies!), but I love leaves changing, pumpkin carving, the weather getting cooler, and all of the new seasonal produce at the farmer’s markets.

Fresh herbs and pomegranate plants


A variety of local honey


Delicious acorn squash


Last call for seasonal tomatoes!

I am also excited to introduce Kristen Gallagher as a guest blogger on “Fresh From the Farm.” Kristen enjoys local foods and photography- what better combination could I ask for? She is going to post some lovely seasonal produce picks each month for us to enjoy, so be sure to check it out!

This month, Kristen ventured out to the State Farmer’s Market in Raleigh and took lovely end-of-summer pictures of the fresh produce. Let’s see what she found:

Bright purple beets

Bursting with berries

Artisinal bread, straight from the bakery


Sweet muscadine grapes


Kristen Gallagher is a Museum Studies student at Meredith College. Currently, she spends her free time volunteering at the NC Museum of Natural Science, photographing plants and things, and painting. She is trying to cook with more local food and is always on the lookout for people to go to the Farmer’s Market with. She hopes to one day keep beehives, chickens and her own garden.
