'Eat Seasonably' is a fun educational resource on seasonality and locality, illustrated by Pauline Lévêque.
Developed in collaboration with local chefs and farmers, this seasonal guide helps you find out what’s available throughout the year in New York or one of its surrounding states*.
Now more than ever it's important to eat in season and to support local agriculture because it tastes better, has a higher nutritional value, is environmentally friendly, and supports the community. Farmer's markets are a great way to get very fresh, flavorful and nutritious produce that have not traveled all over the country (if not the world) before getting into your shopping basket! Farmer's markets stimulate the local food economy.
* The harvesting periods are approximate due to varying weather conditions. Some produce is available from cold storage and/or grown indoors or in greenhouses during colder seasons. Call your local farmers for exact dates, harvest, and availability.
