Spring is prime time to enjoy what Mother Nature gave us, starting with some of the freshest and most flavorful fruits and vegetables available for the season. If you have plans to spend a sunny springtime morning at a local farmers market (or are making a trip to the grocery store), you’ll be glad you have this list in your back pocket. These in-season fruits and vegetables for spring are ripe for the picking, making for a delicious snack or an ultra-healthy meal.
One tip before you head out, though: With today’s supermarkets boasting just about all produce items year-round, it can be challenging to know the seasonal patterns of fruits and vegetables. That’s why we recommend frequenting your farmers market or using Sustainable Table’s Seasonal Food Guide to search for produce in season in your state before you take a trip to the grocery store.
Here are some of our freshest springtime picks to get you started.
