What is in Season When in Michigan

Ever notice how something’s just TASTE better certain times of year? It’s not your imagination, there are some fruit and veggies that are better in certain seasons than others. Not only do they taste better, but they are often cheaper because there is an abundance of it!

March is National Nutrition Month and the theme is Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right. What better way to enjoy the pure taste of something than to enjoy it in season? So, I’ve compiled a list of what is in season when, but this is for Michigan, because that’s where I live and will be most useful for me. However, a quick google search will have you finding websites in no time for your area!

Now, most lists I found is listed alphabetical. That’s great. If you are looking for what month something is harvested in. But I want to know what is in season in March! So this list is sorted by season, then by month. I hope you find this helpful!
