A Guide to what is in season when
One of the easiest ways to save on your grocery budget is purchasing produce that is in season. When you go to the grocery store you will typically find produce that is in season and out of season, making it hard to know if something is considered in season.

You will often hear people telling you to only buy what is in season, but what if you’re not sure? Most of us don’t have the time to Google every produce item while we are shopping. In fact most of us are just trying to get in and out of the grocery store as soon as possible.

When produce is out of season, it will be priced at a much higher price than it would be if it was in season. To help you easily identify which produce is in and out of season, I’ve created a produce guide for you.

Keep in mind that you can stock up on produce when it is in season, just like you can cereal, chips or other snacks. Tomatoes are less expensive during the Summer & Fall. If you find a great price on tomatoes spend a weekend making spaghetti sauce for the next several months. This will ensure you don’t have to buy tomatoes during the months when they are priced higher.

You can stock up on a variety of fruits and produce by canning, freezing or dehydrating them.
