Seasonal Food Guide

Before the days of refrigeration, highways and airplanes, we were more in tune with the knowledge of when foods were in season locally. We ate the bounty that was in season and preserved what we couldn’t consume for future use.

As consumers in today’s globalized grocery marketplace, it’s sometimes hard to remember just what is in season throughout the year.  Refer to this guide to find out when we’ll have local products in season, and consider buying local items in bulk when they’re in season and canning or freezing them for use this winter.
