Seasonality and Sustainability

An essential part of sustainability is to be true to seasonal foods. If a food is in season then you can be pretty sure that it has its best nutritional value, its best price points and most important of all its best flavor. Organic production is much easier to do when a product is in season, so the price difference between organic and non organic diminishes. This means it is financially more sustainable as well.
It is now Citrus season! Blood oranges, grapefruits and tangerines are flavorful and cheap. Asparagus is also coming on strong, though it came in a bit later than last year. To find our seasonal weekly and daily specials, check out our Facebook Page.
