Your Guide to Seasonal Eating: June

The month of June ushers in the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, with long, sunny, and frost-free days that are ideal for growing an abundance of fruits and vegetables.

Whether you visit your local farmers market, subscribe to a nearby CSA program, participate in a community garden, or grow produce in your own back yard, now is the time to embrace garden-fresh vegetables and seasonal fruits!

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 when you shop, and most importantly, enjoy them while they last!
