    Sounds delicious! I’ve found a local food co-op here that has started to recommend seasonal items on a large blackboard. The advantage of this is that a greater volume is sold, so they get cheaper. I’m enjoying being creative in preparing meals.

    Interesting site! However they need to debug the data a bit. It told me I could find local apples in Idaho in May! :) I guarantee unless they mean dried I’m out of luck.

    A great tool, but it still seems pretty limited. I didn’t see avocados on the list in California for any month, and I have a hunch there are some other fruits and veggies they’re leaving out.
