As summer winds down, a slew of garden-fresh produce comes into season. Radicchio, plums, winter squash and turnips are some vegetables that are harvested fresh in September. Other end of summer crops includes apples, Asian pears, and peaches. Western Springs French Market provides consumers a convenient choice to buy the season’s ripest produce in their Thursday market.
