In Season: Spring

It’s finally spring. I’m so excited I wet my plants! But for real… living in Chicago, winter goes on for most of the year. This is the time to shed winter fat and bring on spring rolls. Or something like that.

Spring is the season for light and fresh foods. Though you can get most produce year-round now, the flavors and colors of in season fruits and vegetables are hard to beat. Spring is the season for white and green asparagus, cauliflower, strawberries, and so much more.

We’ve put together a guide of fruits and vegetables that are in season for the spring. We encourage you to print it out and keep it handy when meal planning, or even bring it to the grocery store with you.

You’ll never have to miss out on the prime time to eat spring produce again! Curious as to when a certain fruit or vegetable is in season? Feel free to message us and ask! We’d be happy to hear from you.

My favorite source for knowing when ingredients are in season and for helpful pairing tips is The Flavor Bible (and it’s new sister book The Vegetarian Flavor Bible). Check it out here:

Happy Spring, friends!
