Hopefully everyone has enjoyed a wonderful holiday season, full of joy and laughter, if maybe a little too much food and drink. January is a difficult month to eat fresh and local produce in the Northern hemisphere; there just isn’t a whole lot that grows in the dead of winter! However, if you learn to love your root vegetables and get creative with some soup, you can easily keep that New Year’s resolution to eat healthier, less-processed foods. Here is what’s in season in the Mid-Atlantic region:

  • Apples
  • Beets
  • Carrots

  • Cilantro
  • Fennel
