Winter's Abundance 

No shortage of seasonal foods despite the weather

Walk the aisles of most local grocery stores and you'll still find tomatoes, green beans and big heads of lettuce—all the summer season foods you love. Only this time of year, they taste more like starchy, watery cardboard.

Not so with tender beets, robust cauliflowers and spicy kales. This time of year, these foods and many others are just reaching their prime in places like the Willamette Valley, Washington and California, all within a few hundred-mile radius of Bend. While not exactly local, eating these seasonal foods keeps you connected to the wheel of the year and offer up earthy, comforting flavors.
