Find In-Season Produce Near You With the NRDC’s Interactive Map

November 26, 2014 1:03 pm

If your kitchen is stocked with organic produce, then you're probably already aware of the health and environmental benefits of eating local. Produce that's grown locally has less distance to travel to reach grocery stores, thereby reducing pollution caused by transporting the fruits or veggies across states—or in some cases, continents! What's more, locally grown produce is more flavorful and nutritious, oftentimes landing on grocery store shelves at the peak of ripeness. (Read this article by Michigan State University for more reasons to eat local.)

So you want to eat local, but you're not sure what's in season. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)'s Eat Local map can help! This interactive map makes it easy to see what fruits and veggies are at peak availability near you. Simply click your state for a list of in-season fruits and veggies separated by month. Click each hyperlinked vegetable and fruit for cooking tips and to learn about the produce's nutritional benefits!
