You might imagine that Rhode Island farms are quiet in the colder seasons. But at wintertime farmers’ markets, there is a surprising bounty of local vegetables, including carrots, beets, turnips, squash, lettuce, kale, Swiss chard, radishes, and much more.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss the carrots and parsnips with the butter, oil, and honey. Spread the vegetables in a single layer and season with salt and pepper. Roast the carrots and parsnips for about 35 minutes, or until tender.
