Missing farm-fresh vegetables? The summer growing season may be over, but a new crop of fresh, locally grown vegetables are available across Long Island, with more farms than ever offering winter Community-Supported Agriculture shares or setting up booths at indoor farmers markets.

"A lot of people have gotten used to the fresh vegetables from the summer share and don't really want to go back to the grocery store or buy organic from California," says Eve Kaplan-Walbrecht, co-owner of Garden of Eve in Riverhead. "With a CSA share, you can eat locally pretty much year-round."
