What’s in season now?

Find out what’s in season now, plus get plenty of recipe inspiration to help you make the most of every season’s beautiful, local fare.

The best way to get a feel for what’s in season now is to shop at local farmers markets. Not every town has year-round farmers markets, but even if you’re only able to buy directly from farmers for part of the year, you can begin to get acquainted with how fruits and vegetables ebb and flow throughout the year. Local Harvest is a great tool for finding farmers markets and other local food outlets all over the U.S.

What’s in season now varies by where you live. It’s not really possible to break out what’s in season, month to month, in one list. What’s in season in February in south Florida is going to be different from what’s in season in February in northern Washington, for example. Breaking this list out by season, rather than by month, made the most sense.

If you’re looking for a general idea of what’s in season now, the list below is a handy resource to help with that. Think of this as a guideline to help you pinpoint seasonal produce. Once you know that apples are probably in season, you can look for local apples at the supermarket.

If you do want to find out what’s in season now exactly where you are, Sustainable Table has a beautiful, comprehensive tool that helps you search by state and by month.
