August is quickly coming to a close and Autumn is right around the corner. Late summer and early fall harvests promise to bring bountiful fruits and vegetables to our local farmer’s markets and in our own gardens as well.

What do you do with all that abundant produce!? Cook nutritious meals for your friends and families, of course. This month we want you to show us your best fall recipes made with local, seasonal ingredients!

For example, here in San Francisco, September means heirloom tomatoes, summer squash, figs, grapes and nectarines! Here are a few recipes that show off these flavors beautifully!
