How to Eat Seasonably - A Calendar!

If you eat fruits and veggies that are in season, you can save money, eat yummier food, and make less of a negative impact on the Earth.

The problem? Unless you're a farmer, who knows what's in season?

Enter the Eat Seasonably calendar! On the website, you can select a fruit or vegetable to see when its in season -- or you can download a poster for your records.

If that doesn't seem accurate for the food at your farmer's market, try looking for a harvest calendar for your area. I found this great list for Southern California and this map for the rest of the US.
