Hello March and welcome to month 3 of our Monthly Seasonal Produce Guide.
March is all about GREEN, and not just for St. Patrick’s Day! Spring is here, or about to be, and with it comes the first of two of my favorite spring vegetables—asparagus and artichokes.
While asparagus in our local markets cost about $4/pound in the off-season, when they are plentiful in the spring, I can find them closer to $1/pound. (That’s why my mother advises me, “Always buy your food in season. Saves money, tastes better.”)
You’ll also find broccoli, fennel, and chard, watercress, arugula, and mustard greens, as well as leeks, spring garlic, and spring onions.
