Farm Market Fresh

If you are headed out to the farm market this weekend, here’s this week’s update on the fresh vegetables and fruits your growers are likely to have on hand:

First-of-season: Apricots, cucumbers, snow peas, shelling peas, yellow waxed beans, green beans, melons, squash, red onions, sweet yellow onions, garlic, radishes summer squash and zucchini.

Peak-of-season: Arugula, beets, bok choy, cabbage, cilantro, carrots, chard, cauliflower, collards, green onions, kale, leeks, leaf lettuce, salad mix and spinach.

End-of-season: apples, broccoli, celery, cherries, fava beans, lemons, scallions, oranges, nectarines, peaches, grapefruit and turnips.

Remember, this list reflects seasonality at the farm market I frequent in Sonoma, California, USDA Zone 9. The growers at your farm market can tell you how seasonality may vary where you are–probably not more than a few weeks.
