What's in Season?

Buying local means that we eat with the seasons.

This means that you cannot get items like tomatoes or blueberries year-round, but the anticipation becomes a special and nostalgic experience, one that makes the simple things in life even more special.

Additionally, eating these items in season means that they are at their best in terms of taste and quality.

This is a chart from PA Preferred, giving a basic example of what might be in season at what time in PA. As soon as you open dialogue with your local farmers, you will learn more about the many factors that can affect when these items come into the store.
