What’s In Season: Late Summer
As August winds down and we move into September, farmers are busy cleaning up their fields and preparing to plant fall crops. September finds us in transition between summer produce and waiting for cooler weather fall vegetables.
So what can you anticipate to find at the Market in late summer?
September is a peak for many crops right here in the Valley such as chiles, okra and summer squash. In addition, areas outside of the Valley are coming into high season. You will see apples, tomatoes, corn, melons and peaches coming to us from areas like Prescott, Flagstaff and Wilcox area.
