SpokaneMama and Yoke’s Fresh Market have partnered to bring you some family friendly food advice each month. Find out what fruits and vegetables are in season, get food tips, and find a delicious recipe sure to please your hungry family.

Yokes Market knows that children enjoy veggies and fruits. Each month we will highlight those that are currently in season.

For November…
Veggies in season include: Broccoli, acorn squash, celery and green beans.
Fruits in season include: Asian pears, pears, kiwi, cranberries and apples.

Here are some tips for picking and keeping the best apples:
Ask you produce specialist which is the crispiest apple today, then select firm, shiny, smooth-skinned apples with intact stems. They should smell fresh, not musty. Refrigerate in a plastic bag away from food with a strong odor and use within 3 weeks of purchase.
