If you are headed out to the farm market this weekend, here’s this week’s update on the fresh vegetables and fruits your growers are likely to have on hand:
First-of-season: Apricots, cucumbers, snow peas, shelling peas, yellow waxed beans, green beans, melons, squash, red onions, sweet yellow onions, garlic, radishes summer squash and zucchini.
Peak-of-season: Arugula, beets, bok choy, cabbage, cilantro, carrots, chard, cauliflower, collards, green onions, kale, leeks, leaf lettuce, salad mix and spinach.
End-of-season: apples, broccoli, celery, cherries, fava beans, lemons, scallions, oranges, nectarines, peaches, grapefruit and turnips.
Remember, this list reflects seasonality at the farm market I frequent in Sonoma, California, USDA Zone 9. The growers at your farm market can tell you how seasonality may vary where you are–probably not more than a few weeks.
