Ever tried to buy spinach at a local California produce market in August, only to find they’re not available? That’s because although greens can be found in grocery stores year round, they’re truly in season in the late fall and late spring, between March and June and the again October through December.

We’ve created an in-season California produce calendar so you can easily see when it’s the right time to find the freshest beets or blueberries, or if you’ve missed tomato season. Feel free to share this seasonal calendar on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, or contact us for permission to reuse or reprint a full-size version.
