Produce Seasonality: SF Bay Area Update for March

Diane Sanfilippo Food & Recipes Leave a Comment

Hi everyone!

I receive an email newsletter from CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture) every week for a heads-up on what to look for at the market that weekend. I love checking out the part where it lists what's in or out of season. I figured I'd share this bit of information with you today, and hopefully make it a regular tidbit to pass on in the coming weeks and months.

If you live here in the San Francisco Bay Area, check out the CUESA website or subscribe for yourself if you're a market-goer like myself. Here's the update this week on what's in season. Enjoy!
