I’m always tempted to buy strawberries in the winter, that is, until I see how much they cost… Sticking to only the “in season” fruits and vegetables is a great way to save money. Here’s a handy seasonal produce guide to keep you on track all year-round.
Pro tip: Be sure to shop with your local farmers whenever you get the chance! It helps the local economy!
What’s your favorite fruit or veggie? I go ape for Gala Apples…
I am a summer’s harvest fan. We go berry picking every summer and then I freeze my harvest or make jam so I can eat berries all year long. Same with tomatoes. Pick them in the summer, can and then eat it ’em till way past season’s end.
This is so helpful, Anna! Thank you! I have been looking up each fruit & veggie individually to make sure they’re in season before I go grocery shopping, so this chart will save me so much time and energy. Thanks again! You’re the best!
It’s a great way to save money AND the produce tastes way better, IMO.
I love honeycrisp apples–you can only really get them for a few weeks during the year.
I love potatoes.
thank goodness bananas are always in season! I was LOVING the tomatoes this summer. Tried buying some a few days ago at the farmer’s market and they’re just not the same- the season has passed :(
