What's in season in May 2017, and other
May brings with it Spring and the ability to buy
locally, especially in the deep South where fresh strawberries are available in
Florida and Texas, followed by California. Cold weather crops, like spinach,
some lettuces, peas, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks and
early onions being harvested in all but the colder regions. Many markets still
have fresh winter squash, stored from last Autumn.

Comments from a visitor on
November 28, 2012: "Love this place. Everyone is friendly
and the produce is topnotch. They have a CSA program that runs
from May thru November. Their biggest and best crops are their
apples and peaches, but you can find all sorts of vegetables as
well, in season, and delicious!! They also carry
jams,jellies,salsas made from their produce and ice cream using
their fruit made by a local ice creamery."
