Happy April 1st!
No April Fools’ Day jokes from me today.
Spring is here and that always means one special thing to me…fresh in-season produce is back!
This certainly varies depending on region for how early in Spring you see fresh foods popping up at your farmers’ market, and I’ve got to say that’s one thing I’m excited about in regards to living in California. I have very high hopes for the markets here in the coming weeks!
Let’s take a look at what’s in season for this time of year…
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!
Be on the lookout for the following fruits and vegetables at your local farmer’s market, food co-op, and grocery store this month!
- honeydew melon
- strawberries (my favorite!)
- beans (fava, green)
- greens (including dandelion, collard, and some lettuces)
- sweet onions
