The desire to eat locally sourced, fresh ingredients is a dining trend that isn’t going anywhere. Foodies everywhere love to eat well, whether it’s at home or out on the town. At Marker 32, we understand the importance of serving our guests seasonal dishes. From peaches in the summer to root vegetables during the fall, all of our crafted entrees benefit from rotating accouterments. Here are a few seasonal ingredients you might see on our menu this fall:

2. Seasonal Vegetable Side Dish

Bananas

Grapefruits

Apples

Oranges

Passion Fruit

Strawberries

 

Tangy vinaigrette, creamy sauces with a note of citrus and fruit-infused cocktails are a few of our favorite ways to brighten up your dining experience. Our fall specials often feature seasonal fruits in creative ways. Apples + chicken and winter citrus + peppery greens are just two of our favorite ways to incorporate fruit into a meal.

 

1. Fried Green Tomatoes — green goddess/ pimento cheese/ apple cider gastrique/ nueske’s bacon
