When you buy seasonal produce, you’ll not only save money, you’ll also buy fruit and vegetables at peak flavor.
It’s pretty simple to know what’s in season - it’s the same stuff that’s on sale.
As farmers harvest their crops, supplies rise while demand remains the same. To change this, grocers run sales on seasonal produce to move demand to match.
So, instead of paying $4 for a pineapple when it’s out of season, you can pay $2 for one that’s in season.
Repeat this process over the course of the year, and you’ll not only move closer to completing your Mason Jar Vacation Challenge, you’ll also enjoy more flavorful, seasonal dishes.
