What’s In Season In March?

As we get closer to our March Food Swap, are you wondering what’s in season while you look for ideas for things to swap? Foodland Ontario has a great chart that shows produce availability throughout the year. Available here, the availability guide shows that in March, the following produce is in season:

Beets

Cabbage

Carrots

Cucumber (greenhouse)

Lettuce (greenhouse)

Mushrooms

Onions (cooking and red)

Parsnips

Peppers (greenhouse)

Potatoes

Rhubarb

Rutabega

Sprouts

Squash

Sweet Potatoes

Tomatoes (greenhouse)

Does that inspire some ideas for our March swap? Don’t forget, you can also theme your swap items… we’re swapping the day after St. Patrick’s Day and a couple days before the start of spring. Both are great ideas to theme.

Details about the March Food Swap are available here. Remember, you need to register and get a ticket at Eventbrite for our swaps. Go to our March Swap Eventbrite and get your ticket today!
