Grow, Savor, Compost

How do I know what food is local and seasonal?

Patronizing local farmers markets, farm stands or community farms (CSAs) guarantees you access to fruits and vegetables from local farms. Even major supermarket chains feature some locally grown produce in season. The “Fresh From Florida” state marketing program highlights fruits, vegetables and even seafood harvested in Florida. When dining out, look for restaurants that specialize in farm-to-table dishes or ask servers what’s in season and on their menus. Become a more informed consumer by boosting your own knowledge of what’s in season. This calendar can help.
