Summer—for most of us it’s the season of fun, a time to get out of our homes and enjoy the sunlight. In addition to the bright summer days, many delicious and unique foods are in season.

Foods eaten in season contain peak nutrients and generally put less of a dent in your budget than if purchased out of season. Eating the most nutritious and freshest ingredients can make or break your summer. Whether you want to grow your own fresh produce in your backyard, stop by a farmers’ market, or shop at your local grocery or co-op, the following hints and tips lead you to the freshest produce and where to find it to stay healthy and budget friendly all summer.

Summer Produce Recipes

First of all, to eat in season means choosing fruits and vegetables at their natural peak growing times. When produce is grown in conditions that require minimal care, they’re in season; think of how berries grow fat and ripen in the hot steamy months of July and August. Here is a list of commonly known produce best eaten in the summer months: basil, green beans, beets, all kinds of berries, Bok choy, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, celery, chicories, collard greens, cucumbers, fennels, arugula, all kinds of herbs, lettuce, mustard greens, onions, peas, peppers, radicchio, spinach, summer squash, tomatillos, and tomatoes.
