Know your area’s Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Seasons
Know your local seasons! If you want to eat more fresh, local produce then get to know the local growing seasons in your area. I live in the Pacific Northwest so here we have:
|Local Grow Season||Fresh Produce|
|June (Mid) (mid)||Blackberries|
|June/July (Late)||Apricots, Peaches, Nectarines|
|July/Aug (mid)||Sweet Corn, Apples, Pears, Tomatoes, Pumpkins, Squash, Cucumbers|
Not a comprehensive list but you get the idea! Starting in May find those local growers. We also have the Vancouver Farmer’s Market which is fun just to walk around and see what’s being offered but a weekly visit guarantees you the best produce at the best prices.
