Best produce to buy in January

apartments for rent in Elora, shopping, winterWhile we normally associate the best produce with the summer and fall months, some of the most flavorful fruits and vegetables are freshest during the colder months. Whether you’ve committed to a healthier diet this New Year or are simply looking to add variety to your daily dishes, buying in-season produce is less expensive and more beneficial to your well-being. To help the residents of their Elora apartments stay healthy, our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, has compiled a list of the best produce to buy in January.



If you’re a fan of fruits that boast tartness, tanginess and a hint of sweetness, grapefruits are a healthy option that will satisfy your hunger. January is the perfect time to pick up this fruit, as it is just coming into season.



This leafy green is considered one of the healthiest vegetables around and luckily it grows best during the winter months. Incorporate this greenery into stews or try chopping and sautéing it with garlic and mixing it with your favorite pastas. For additional flavor don’t forget to add in some olive oil and salt and pepper. Another tasty option that seems to be gaining traction in the health food community is baked kale chips. Simply slice the leaves off the stalk, toss them in olive oil or whichever spices or seasonings appeal to you, bake them for about 10 to 15 minutes and enjoy a healthy snack to combat hunger. Drop by the Elora Farmers’ Market to pick up all the ingredients you’ll need. The store is a six-minute drive and 24-minute walk from the Sandstone Apartments and a five-minute drive and 26-minute walk from the Executive Suites.



Enjoy snacking on these small, sweet oranges, which are the tastiest between December and January. These oranges are seedless and easy to peel making them a superb snack for when you’re at the office or on the go. Located at 6458 Wellington Road 7, Dar’s Country Market is the ideal place to pick up these juicy treats. The apartments located at 120-122 David Street East and 143 Kertland Street, Williams and McDaniel’s Elora apartments are both less than a five-minute drive and 25-minute walk from the store.



Root vegetables like carrots, potatoes and turnips are all in season during the colder months and offer a hearty option when infused into soups and side dishes.


Winter Squash

Winter squash comes in many different variations that include acorn, spaghetti and butternut squash. Due to its thick rind, squash can last a long time without spoiling if stored correctly in a cool, dry place.



Get your daily dose of Vitamin C with this winter-friendly fruit, which adds the perfect amount of tartness to many winter dishes and desserts. For an unconventional twist, add cranberries as a salad topping or to that traditional banana bread recipe. Drop by Zehrs Markets located on 800 Tower South, which is a 10-minute drive from the Sandstone Apartments and an eight-minute drive from the Executive Suites, to pick up this produce item.


For those who are looking to rent, Williams and McDaniel’s Elora apartments located at 120-122 David Street East and 143 Kertland Street offer beautiful apartments that provide an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
