Fall is all about cozy home-cooked meals that nourish your soul and satisfy your tastebuds. One of the many benefits of living in Contra Costa County is the abundance of diverse produce that flourishes in the moderate climate. On Saturdays, you can take the family down to the Brentwood Farmers Market to pick up locally-grown fruits and veggies! Apples, grapes, leafy greens, and root vegetables are all in season and are sure to inspire some creativity in the kitchen!
