Though you may be able to find just about every type of fruit, vegetable, or herb everyday of the year in the produce department, many items you come across are not in season. They have likely been transported from different climates to satisfy your out-of-season cravings. This extra time between picking and eating means loss of nutrients, flavor, and more.
Here are a couple of charts to help you select the freshest, most nutritious, and flavor-packed produce items, any time of the year.  Click on the below image to make it larger.

Don’t be shy! Speak with any of our Produce Team Leaders at your local store. They can fill you in on which items have just arrived from local farms, how long they’ll be in season, and what produce items to look forward to next!
