So it’s pretty hard to know what’s in season where you live. Unless you’re a farmer. Or you go to farmers’ markets. Or you have crazy-awesome grandma skills. Grocery stores will stock fresh asparagus next to bright red bell peppers like it ain’t no thing, and that’s just confusing.
So when Eric showed me this widget – yeah, it’s a real word – that helps you figure out what’s in season where you live, I knew we had to include it on Carpé Season.
Introducing our new page: What’s in Season? Simply choose your state and current month, and it will generate a list to show you what’s in season at that time and place. There is also a tab for Farmers’ Markets. You just type in your zip code and how far you’re willing to go, and it shows you the nearest markets. You do not need to press the go button on either tab. The list generates right after you enter both fields of information.
A couple of disclaimers:
1. We totally did not create this. It came from this website. But we’re working on something awesomer. That’s right. Awesomer.
2. Sorry the widget left you out, international friends. (Rwanda shoutout!)
3. Minnesotans, please, for your own sake, do not look at California’s seasonal produce at any point between October and April unless you are prepared to move there.
