What’s in Season?

Having relocated to Miami from New York, one of my greatest pleasures is calling NY friends in January and gloating about how I just picked the sweetest strawberries and the meatiest tomatoes. Yes, Florida’s winter harvest is definitely one of the perks of living here!

Throughout the year,  I try to shop for fruits and vegetables that are in season because they are usually tastier and cheaper.

Courtesy of Sustainable Table, a wonderful website which provides information on seasonality, I detailed below – month-by-month- what fruits and vegetables are in season in Florida. If you also live here, print this out and use it when you go to the market to decide what you’ll buy and cook.

However, if you live in a completely different geography, please reference this page on Sustainable Table to learn what’s in season in your area: http://www.sustainabletable.org/shop/seasonal/
