Ermahgerd it’s springtime! Spring’s the season of warm days + cool breezes, soups + salads, shirts + jeans, and other mild weather combinations that we all love.
Bold items are new additions from last month’s list.
Apples might be less abundant, but citrus fruits will shine – chow down on mandarins, oranges and grapefruit.
Beans, asparagus, zucchini and more great veggies will be coming into season:
- Asian greens
- Broad beans
Why shop seasonally?
- It tastes better when we grow foods in their ideal climate
- They’ll pack more punch in the nutrient department
- It’s more likely that your food is local, so it’s fresher
Shopping seasonally is generally cheaper, more delicious, and better for the environment.
