basket of fresh vegetables

Depending on where you call home, autumn may seem like a tricky time to find seasonal fruits and vegetables that are native to your area. But despite chilly temperatures, there’s still plenty of tasty, in-season produce that’s ripe for the picking.

To get better acquainted with the fruits and veggies that are seasonal in your state, why not try a farm-to-table brunch? Decorate with a bit of fall foliage and gather around the table for farm-fresh fare that’s heavy on flavor but light on environmental impact. What better way to spend a crisp weekend morning?

To get you started, Earth911 assembled a delightful menu made from seasonal produce that is available locally almost anywhere in the U.S. Check out the full menu here, then click through to learn more about each deliciously seasonal dish. Pick a few recipes, or try them all!
