This season, our Thanksgiving Day feast may be smaller as families stay closer to home. Regardless of the size of your celebration, we hope your table is full of fresh, local fixins that nourish and fulfill you. Impress your dinner guests by making the best Thanksgiving using all of the local foods this season has to offer us.

Winter veggies are great to use this holiday season. If you missed out on a trip to the farmers’ markets this month, keep in mind that many grocery stores proudly display local producers on their shelves. Look for local apples, sweet potatoes, cauliflower and brussels sprouts on your next trip.

Remember, buying local doesn’t only support small farmers in nearby communities, it also benefits you and your family with nutrition-packed freshness you can taste. We’d love to see your local T-day dishes! Here are a few of our favorite side dish recipes featuring local goodness: Maple Roasted Carrots and Mashed Sweet Potatoes.
