Squash & Apples: Locally Grown Farm Report

Temps are starting to drop, a few leaves are beginning to turn, and the unofficial end to summer (Labor Day) is now a memory. Yes, it’s time to face the truth — Summer is making way for Autumn. But there’s no reason to fret — the changing of the seasons brings an abundance of seasonal produce. This week, apples and squash are here to usher in the new season! We recommend grabbing some Spaghetti Squash for this hearty dinner idea, and then using a few apples to whip up this tasty Autumn Apple Skillet Cake for dessert. Whatever you choose, we hope you enjoy the flavors of the season!

Be sure to check your Heinen’s for even more locally grown produce, displayed at the front of the Produce Department, which transforms into a local Farmer’s Market each summer and fall thanks to our relationships with our Ohio and Illinois farmers (some of whom have been supplying us with tasty fruits and veggies for three generations!)

We’ll keep you updated on what’s available from these and other farms as the season goes on with your Locally Grown Farm Report! (Availability may vary from store to store depending on weather conditions and demand.)
