Seasons Changing, Goodness Abounds
Late August means more change is in the air. This week we’ve talked to customers and vendors who are sending their kids to college and helping them prepare for this new season of life, and to some of our Sprouts Club Kids who are also getting ready to go back to school. It still feels like we have so much of summer ahead of us, with these hot temperatures and all of the gorgeous harvests coming out of the fields. But slowly nature is preparing for the calming of fall. When we will see the first turning of the leaves? We can almost taste the sweet refreshing crunch of the fall season’s many varieties of leafy greens. But we’re not rushing it yet! It is a good reminder to get out to the market and enjoy all the bountiful varieties of summer fruits and veggies, and to soak in those summer feelings. We’re sure grateful to spend our summers with you. See you Saturday, Durham!
