This helpful printable Summer Produce Guide features some best produce to buy at their peak!
Summer is my favorite season ever, not just because of the weather and relaxed schedule, but also because of the fantastic summer produce that is available. Some of my favorite fruits are only available this time of year. To help you take advantage of the great summer produce, we have a printable guide for you. Buying produce is often cheaper when buying in their peak season and it is also a great time to change-up your recipes to include your favorite fruit!
Grocery stores and farmers markets are bursting with gorgeous fruits and vegetables in their prime. Now is the time to take advantage of the beautiful produce that nature brings! You can also find some great inexpensive produce at your local farmer’s market. This photo is from a farmer’s market in France. I love checking out the farmer’s markets when travelling. It is a great way to experience local tastes and pick up some fun spices and condiments to take home.
Some of my favorite summer fruits are peaches, plums and nectarines. These summer fruits not only taste great but area a good source of vitamins too! I just wish they were in season more often. If biting into a juicy piece of fruit is not summer, I don’t seriously don’t know what is.
When shopping at the grocery store, look for peaches and plums that yield to gentle pressure and are not mushy. Print out this free Summer Produce Guide for use when planning your menu.
Summer produce is great in salads and drink recipes too, like these refreshing fruity cocktails!
