Celebrate Idaho’s Harvest
September is Idaho Preferred Month, bringing awareness to the fact that fall is the peak of harvest season in Idaho. Locally produced fruits, vegetables, wines, meats, breads, dairy products and specialty foods are plentiful and easy to enjoy at Idaho restaurants and farmers markets.
In August and September, peaches and plums appear on menus as tasty desserts and sweet and savory sauces. In September, early variety apples fill the fruit stands, followed by pears and pluots later in the month. Onions are also a popular crop. Many are shipped worldwide, but they are also enjoyed locally in fresh salsas and chutneys, or served grilled, roasted or sautéed next to Idaho raised beef. In October, grapes are harvested from vineyards with the goal of becoming award winning Idaho wines. And finally, October means the potato harvest is on. There is no shortage of potato dishes available in this state!
