Seasonal Eating Guide

Seasonal eating means eating fruits and vegetables that are locally grown during their official growing season. When food is grown in season, it is more nutritious because it is adapted to the region, grown in soil, and harvested at its peak. Buying seasonal foods also decreases the amount of both packaging required and the greenhouse gases generated from driving your food across the country.When you go to the grocery store, you see fresh produce from all over the world, but just because fruits and vegetables can be found in your grocery store doesn’t mean they are currently in season.
