Fall also means that it's Freaky Fruit® season! Unusual fruits and vegetables are becoming more and more common in markets and households alike. It’s no surprise to have a bowl filled with Kiwano melons or cherimoyas on your kitchen counter. It’s time to get creative with fun displays of fresh fruits!

Cooler Weather, Comfort Foods and Halloween
October brings us cooler weather and more comfort foods! Home-cooked meals to warm the heart and soul. Pumpkins are the most popular squash for October, carving them into Jack-o-Lanterns and making them into pies. Hard squash is perfect for baking or roasting. Use any hard squash shell as a vessel for serving your vegetable or even use it for serving soup, chili and more. You can use small squash as decorations, centerpieces and even individual sides.

At the end of October, we celebrate one of the most anticipated holidays of fall. Millions of Americans spend October 31 dressing up in funny, scary, and realistic costumes, eating candy and fun treats after gathering them from homes in the neighborhood. Groups gather for parties, bringing their favorite “spooky” dishes to share. There are many stories about Halloween, some religious and others superstitious.

However you decide to spend October, don’t forget to check out Melissa’s Fall items.
