Your Guide to Seasonal Eating: July

Summer is in full swing, and gardens across the U.S. are pumping out plenty of fresh produce! Some of summer’s best vegetables are at their peak this month, including corn, cucumbers, tomatoes, summer squash, and zucchini.

And don’t forget the fruit! Raspberries and blueberries are widely available right now, so get some while they last.

The guide below outlines which produce items you’re likely to find in your area this month. Don’t forget to look for these items at your local farmers market, in your CSA basket, or in your own back yard garden!
