Today is the last day of iPho's Superpho Bowl Challenge

Thanksgiving and all that feasting is just around the corner, but don't jump the gun and miss out on the fun this weekend and leading up to Turkey Day. If you're looking for super fresh vegetables or just want to try something new on your Thanksgiving menu, be sure to visit one of our area farmers markets. The list of offerings from local farmers is long and inspiring—everything from radicchio and purple daikon to the more traditional carrots, sweet potatoes, and Irish potatoes.
