To the internet!
Google your state, month, and produce.
For example : ohio march produce
Localfoods.about.com
Local harvest can put you in direct contact with a farmer or farmer's market where they can only sell what's in season.

your state department of agriculture is the best place to look for info about what is grown in your area.
as a secondary source localharvest.org can link you up with farms and co-ops in your area.

I would check grocery store flyers... front page is lost leaders and seasonal less expensive draw you in stuff.... so I check to see what is inexpensive this week in vegetables.... mushrooms..... broccoli....... ...... so in the spring the change is greater.... lettuce... etc... fall squash tomatoes.... etc..

That has a pretty nice list of what is in season by month. You could also contact a local garden club or even the produce manager of your grocery store and ask them for suggestions, especially if you want to keep it local.

I am trying to eat seasonal foods for the sake of better eating, better budgeting etc.

well I am curious, does my location have anything to do with it?

like the "seasonal" produce in texas is different than AK for whats available?

also, really where and how do I find out what the best veggies are to buy in March? or in april? etc?

would love some ideas.

thanx. emoticon emoticon
