Farmers market roundup: Nov. 15-21

If you want a stunning centerpiece that does double duty as something you can eat, look no further than our feature on stuffing a Hubbard squash, complete with recipe. Most of this week’s markets will be selling a variety of winter squashes, so look for a big one. Pumpkins suited for eating will be available as well.

Buy small ones, too; I recommend adding Baked Pumpkin With Corn and Apple Pudding to your Thanksgiving menu. Talk about presentation.
