“Seasonal” – Take a look at how to stay active and make delicious food choices no matter what the temperature is outside

It is always best for your taste buds and your wallet to purchase produce that is in season.

March is a bit of a precarious month for produce.

This is because Weather patterns are often unpredictable: sometimes quick melting know causes flooding and ruins crops for miles; other times late frosts destroy leaves and buds.

Here is a list of traditionally in-season vegetables and fruits for the month of March:

Late Winter/Early Spring Veggies:

  • Beets
  • Dandelion
  • Fava beans
  • Peas
  • Fingerling Potatoes
  • Radishes
  • Spinach
  • Turnips
  • Fennel
  • White asparagus
  • Watercress
  • Wild mushrooms

Late Winter/Early Spring Fruit

  • Blood oranges
  • Citrus minneolas/tangelos
  • Papaya
  • Lemons
  • Rhubarb

Not sure where you can go to get the freshest, local fare your city has to offer?

Quite guessing!

Simply punch in your zip code and away you go! Don’t forget your re-usable bags.

MissFit Tip: Once you find a market you want to try, check the listing on Yelp and see if there are any reviews. That way you can narrow your focus to the “critically-acclaimed” ones and shy away from duds.

Happy Seasonal Saturday!

Stay Well,

MissFit
