Fruits and Vegetables in Season

Fruits in Season and Vegetables in Season: A Guide to the Best Times to Buy Produce!

Most produce is available year-round, but that doesn’t mean anytime is the best time to buy. For maximum freshness, flavor, and nutritional content, fruits and vegetables should be purchased when it’s in season — that is, shortly after farmers have harvested it.

Here’s when some of our favorite fruits and vegetables are in season in your Farmers’ Almanac weather zone. Most of the crops listed are in season at one time or another in all regions, so you can track the availability of your favorite food across the United States!

Instructions: Pick a region/zone on the map FIRST, then select a season below that. A list of fruits and vegetables will show for that region and season.

Don't forget to select a region above!

Spring (March, April, May)

Summer (June, July, August)

Fall (September, October, November)

Winter (December, January, February)

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
