Most of the produce offered at the winter farmer’s market consisted of root vegetables, like turnip, carrots, and beets. Are you sitting down, Mom? Because yes, I bought beets, that vegetable that I always hated as a kid! They were organic beets from Wintermoon Farm in Hadley, MA. The farm does not have a website, but there is a neat article about the farm and their efforts to be carbon neutral.

I picked up a few beets to purchase, and asked the farmer how he would cook them. He recommended that I trim the ends, and cut off any bad spots but not actually peel the beets. Then they could be roasted at 375F with some olive oil, salt, and pepper. That’s exactly what I did, and the end result was delicious. They were golden brown and tender, and I was happy to be eating locally.
