Buying what’s in season: veggies and fruits that is!

With most grocery stores brimming with fruits and vegetables all year-around, it’s difficult to know what’s in season and what’s not. Farmers markets on the other hand sell only what is freshly (and locally) grown – yet another great reason to buy produce from farmer’s markets!

But for those of us who find ourselves schlepping to the grocery store for our asparagus and zucchini, Center for Urban Education and Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA) has a great seasonal chart that can help identify the ‘in-season’ items.

Here’s just a snapshot of the easy to read vegetable chart available on CUESA’s website. Just follow the links to check out the vegetable and fruit charts.
