Look for in-season produce to save money at the grocery store. That’s nice, but how do you know what’s in-season? If you don’t personally know a farmer to ask, here are some clues:
Produce on a Pallet
If the grocery store produce manager didn’t even bother taking the produce off the pallet, odds are it’s in season.
Look at The Sticker
Produce stickers usually list the state or country where the fruit or vegetable was grown. If the location is relatively close to you it’s probably in-season.
Speak Up and Ask
“Hey there produce man, what’s a super fresh deal this week?” That was easy, right? They’re usually extra excited to share.
Track the Price
If the price drops significantly and the produce looks great, who are we kidding? Don’t even worry if it’s in season. Get it in your cart on the double.
