Every season has its vegetable glories: Tomatoes in summer, delicate greens in spring. But I feel that vegetables in autumn are the most satisfying, from glorious sweet potatoes to silky rutabaga. Chard, kale, and cabbage offer hearty salads, and a single beet can make a sweet lunch. My beloved Brussels sprouts are poking up their little heads, and I've already begun caramelizing sprouts in butter, eating them for dinner with nothing else on the plate. Roasted acorn squash, drizzled with maple syrup, could be breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

And yet in the rush of fall, it's easy to fall back on old standards and to forget the possibilities of these beautiful things. We're here to give you options and fresh colors, a menu and a palette of glorious vegetables — Turnips, celeriac, rutabaga, potatoes, carrots, parsnips, potatoes, sweet potatoes, squash, beets, onions, cabbage, kale, chard, and more.

Also, as we move through Autumn Vegetable Week, we'd love to hear your questions! Are there any questions on your mind about vegetables? Anything you'd like to learn about? Tell us here, or shoot us an email.
