What’s in Season for February?

Produce Question Mark - Asparagus and Tomato

Eating seasonally is such an important concept, for a number of reasons … Produce in season is at the peak of ripeness so it’s plentiful, reasonably priced, nutritious and tasty. The NRDC has this handy Eat Local reference tool which allows one to check and see what’s in season for their geography and I use it a lot; however, I do want to start planning in advance to hunt for recipes before I head to the store. I tend to just walk in and buy whatever looks good.

Currently, for California, our seasonal produce is as follows:

Apples

  1. Such a great post! During the winter months, it’s less obvious about what’s in season, so thank you for this information!

  2. Roasted butternut squash and brussels sprouts atop a bed of spinach with a nice piece of grilled halibut topped off with a sauteed onions and fennel! Sounds like a marvelous meal to me! Ha! I just made my mouth water! ;)

  3. In NC right now it’s snowing, we always have to buy from Ca. or Costa Rica, which I love early in the yr the fruit are so sweet! when I can buy local I do probably repair shop local and by local to support our local community that’s very important to me it doesn’t matter what I’m purchasing I always try to see if I can buy local first

  5. Great list. I also love the question mark shot. It is a really cool shot!

  6. That’s a great link! Thanks. Unfortunately in St. Louis, we won’t have anything seasonal until March (other than green house stuff – herbs and such). So what’s in season in California is what’s best in our supermarkets at the moment, alas. Good post – thanks.
