Out of season fruits  and veggies are always overpriced and under-ripe am I right? Nothing sucks more than spending a small fortune on a pint of strawberries only to find out that they are completely lacking in flavor because it’s wintertime. Living in the north east means that we’re faced with inflated prices and lower quality produce around this time of year. As a result, we make it a point to buy only what’s in season.

  2. I have a page earmarked on my computer so that I can check what is in season. In Arizona we have a program where you can buy up to 60 lbs. of produce for $10. It is produce that would have been thrown away. A lot of it is organic.

  3. I do love shopping for fresh seasonal fruits and veggies. However, frozen fruits & veg are excellent options, too, when there is not much in season – they still maintain their nutrition and are pretty cheap. You get the best of both worlds when buying seasonal fresh produce and not-in-season frozen produce!

  4. I adore these charts! They are so cute and well laid out! I’m working really hard this winter to shop seasonal and I am loving it! I don’t know why I never branched out more before.
