When to Buy the Best Produce

I always try to get the most out of my fruits and vegetables by making sure I buy them at the right time and the best quality.  It may seem complicated to know when to buy what produce but it’s not as difficult as it may seem. I have created a mini guide to know when to buy the best produce at the store. You will also notice these trends at farmers markets too. Some produce is great all year; for example grapes, bananas, celery, and carrots.
