If autumn had an official color, it would be orange. From pumpkins adorning porches to spectrum of yellows to reds of the changing leaves, and Nyack Farmers Market 's market stands are in on the action with everything from carrots to squash!

When you think of carrots and other orange vegetables, beta-carotene is the first nutrient that comes to mind. This important antioxidant converts to vitamin A in the body, which helps keep skin and eyes healthy, and is also crucial for building healthy immune and reproductive systems.

Orange veggies like sweet potatoes are also high in fiber, vitamin C, and manganese, a mineral that helps keep your blood-sugar steady.
