With the economy the way it is and food prices rising, it is a good thing to know when fruits and vegetables are in season. When you buy out of season, it costs you more money. When you buy in season and from your local food supplier, you are saving that money, you can buy more to freeze or can and you are helping your local economy. Why your local food supplier? Because when you use the farmers market to your advantage, you are saving the cost of fuel for that supplier to ship it to you and it helps to boost your local economy.


You can print out the handy charts and put them on your fridge for handy reference. This list was given to me by one of our own local farmers. He says these times are typical all around the country, as this is a growers list, but may vary by a few weeks.
