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