Want to find out when Local Fruit & Vegetables are in Season?


 Everything listed below has it's own season! Each item (especially Fruit) may be available only for a week or maybe it is available for 2 months in one year. A grocery store has to buy fruit and vegetables from all over the world so they can be avaible for sale all year long. So please look at the Ripening Chart for when your favorite fruit or vegetable may be available. But remember that the season varies each year by a few days, so check back and see if what you are looking for is ready for the season.

These dates below are not exact. They are the average time the item is available on a normal year. The only problem is in Michigan we never have normal years. Sometimes they are earlier and sometimes they are later.
