Why eat fruits, vegetables, and fish that are in season? Because they tend to be tastier and cheaper than things that aren’t. As far as I’m concerned that’s reason enough. But there is another plus, by eating food that’s in season in your area you are also doing your big or small share towards helping the environment.

* Ladies (and Gents) take this list with a grain of salt, if you just happen to live in the Arctic Circle with a two month growing season this list won’t apply to you. For those of you in South Florida your growing season is a bit different from the folks living around the Great Lakes. You get my drift…

So what’s in season in March? Here’s the list

Artichokes, Arugula, Asparagus, Avocados, Beets, Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Chives, Collards, Endive, Garlic, Leeks, Onions, Parsley, Parsnips, Potatoes, Radishes, Turnips, Spinach
