What's In Season

Melons in March, Nectarines in November?? 

Ever wonder why strawberries don’t taste as good in December as in June? Why corn on the cob is less appetizing in January than July? Many fruits & vegetables are transported, processed, treated & globally distributed +1,000 miles away from where they are grown, arriving to market “out of season.” When we enjoy spring/summer’s bounty of fresh fruits & seasonal vegetables we promote local farmers’ markets, community supported agriculture-CSA’s, urban gardens & on site family run farms. To learn more about sustainable food systems & download a free seasonal fruit & veggie guide in your state visit http://www.sustainabletable.org/seasonalfoodguide/
