How to Eat Seasonally – A Seasonal Produce Guide

Eating seasonally is easier than you think! Look for farmer’s markets and produce stands. Grocery stores label or will tell you where their produce is sourced and fruits and vegetables are often on sale when they’re abundant. Simply knowing what is in season will help you make better selections.

Eating seasonally simply means taking advantage of the harvest schedule and incorporating fruits and vegetables in your diet and meal planning when produce is at its peak. Eating locally means enjoying produce that doesn’t have to travel very far. Both elements allow consumption as close to harvest as possible so the ingredients are fresher, taste better and retain their nutritional value. It will save you money too!
