Current In-Season Crops (May 2020)

Current In-Season Crops (May 2020)

When we talked with customers, we found that one of the biggest reasons they didn’t buy locally grown food, was it was too difficult to keep up with what produce was or wasn’t in season. Without adequate warning, people found it difficult to plan meals.


So I thought we’d share a little information about what produce is in season now and what is coming into season as Winter approaches. Take this as a rough guide, but the best way to keep on track of what is in season, is by watching to see what is available on our platform or at your local farmers market. We’ve highlighted the crops coming OUT of season in orange and the crops coming INTO season in green. Any fruit or vegetables that are coloured black shouldn’t change in availability anytime soon.
