It is always important to know which fruits and vegetables are in season when you are shopping at the grocery store or local market. Produce that is in season is the most affordable because it’s the most plentiful. Your produce will also taste its best since it is harvested at the peak of freshness.
If you want to take it a step further, buying locally grown produce drives down the cost even more, tastes the freshest, and is the most environmentally friendly. It requires less time and resources, such as gas, to transport.
