Ever tried to buy cherries at a local Michigan produce market in March, only to find they’re not available? That’s because although cherries can be found in some grocery stores year round, they’re truly in season in Michigan in the summer, between June and July.
We’ve created an in-season produce calendar for Michigan so you can easily see when it’s the right time to find the freshest cantaloupe or watermelon, or if you’ve missed squash 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.
