Ever tried to buy strawberries at a local Illinois farmers market in August, only to find they’re not available? That’s because although strawberries can be found in grocery stores year round, they’re truly in season in the spring, in May and June.

We’ve created an in-season produce calendar for Illinois so you can easily see when it’s the right time to find the freshest peach, or if you’ve missed citrus 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.
