Eating in Season

Eating in Season is the best way to get the most flavor out of your farm fresh fruits and vegetables. What is the difference between apples bought at the farmers’ market grown in Sebastopol, harvested in September versus apples from an anonymous out of state apple grower bought in the grocery store in May? Have you ever done a taste test? There is a big disparity of flavors here. The apple grown locally has been allowed to fully ripen on the tree and was picked a few days before you eat it. The apple from out of state was picked long before its sugars were even thinking about maturing and it may have been in cold storage for up to a year. That local apple is going to blow your mind with its taste. We all know that produce starts to lose nutrition when it is picked so ultimately the sooner it gets into our bodies to fuel our muscles and brains, the better for us.

When you eat grapes in January or February or even December, you are eating grapes from Chile. When you eat Strawberries in the winter they are coming up from Mexico. Do you realize that they still use pesticides that have been banned in the US? Have you ever eaten the tomatoes from the grocery store in the winter? Not so great. How about the heirlooms in season from the farmers market? Tasting the first strawberries coming out of Watsonville in May? How about the first Brentwood corn and peaches? The seasonal foods we wait for and anticipate the first bites of… these are the ones we remember long after the season is over.
