When fruits and vegetables are in season somewhere, even if not here, the quality goes up while the price comes down. A smart shopper can take advantage of the variety and plan menus accordingly. This week we shopped for produce and looked for what’s in season in July. Pricing is as comparable as possible since sizes can vary.
On July 15 we shopped for:
Green leaf lettuce
Strawberries (1 pt.)
Blueberries (I pt.)
