I first took pics of my farmer’s market hauls back when I started my blog in March 2014, with the idea that I would one day create a post featuring 12 months of seasonal produce in pictures. Then I forgot…
We spoiled Northern Californians can shop year round at many farmer’s markets. Although we really have only one season—awesome (as a Canadian transplant, I should know)—the food does vary over 12 months.
In most of these pics, you’ll notice carrots, onions and celery, highlighted by rotating seasonal crops. Root vegetables and oranges in winter give way to asparagus and berries in the spring, followed by those long-awaited stone fruits, and late in the summer, melons and tomatoes precede the pumpkins and squash of the fall. Since it’s almost June, I decided to start there.
My brilliant boyfriend suggested I turn these pics into a calendar. What do you think?
If you want to reduce the disposable packaging in your life, reduce your food miles and—last but not least—eat healthier, tastier food—support your local farmers. Read my post “7 Reasons to Shop at the Farmer’s Market” for more benefits.
