August: Now In Season!

by Danica on August 6, 2013

When you eat fruits and veggies that are currently in-season, you consume produce that contains an even higher nutritional value.  The produce is also more flavorful, fresh, and cost-effective!

Meeee too. It makes me wish (even more so) that I lived further South though – I get so jealous when I see pictures of their glorious farmer’s market displays!

Awesome to have a list!!!

You can always guess what fruits & veggies are in season by the enormous amounts of a particular veggie or fruit they are carrying lol This is so great to have a list now instead of guessing!

Great info and thank you for sharing with us!!

I always try to eat what’s in season and support my local farmers by shopping farmer’s markets. Although I do some things out of season like Kabocha squash which I purchase almost every trip to the grocery store :-) During the winter we order from Farm Fresh to You which delivers a box of locally sourced organic produce weekly or biweekly. During the summer it’s easier to shop farmer’s markets so we stick to that for fresh produce.

Gaaahh I have yet to find/try Kabocha squash!! It’s making me crazy because I hear all the time (in the blog world at least) about how good it is!

This post is right on time for me. I’m doing a veggie/fruit of the month challenge on the blog, and I’ve been looking for good, in season fruit all day! Your list is much more extensive than some of the ones that I’ve found on the internet.

P.S. I love pears and wish they were always in season/buy them year round regardless.

Yum!!! I see lots of my favorites! Thanks so much for sharing this Danica. I’m a corn on the cob lover. I remember in 3rd grade when I was student of the week, I had to put my favorite food. I put corn. Clearly, nothing has changed. ;-)
