March Fruits & Vegetables (+ Recipes)

We are less than three weeks away from the first day of spring! Granted, it’s been a fairly moderate winter where we are, but we’re excited for the warmer days ahead nonetheless. The grill is calling our name, as is our farmers market! While there’s not an abundance of produce in season during March, it does make our mouths water thinking about all that is in store for us in the coming months.

If you’re trying to save money on your grocery bill, fill your cart with seasonal items, like some of March’s in-season fruits and vegetables. It’s also a simple way for you to make a positive impact on the environment.

March Fruits

Fresh fruits are a rarity his time of year, and that makes us appreciate the sweet, ripe apricots and oranges even more. These bright orange fruits break up the monotony of all the in-season vegetables.

March Vegetables

As is appropriate for March, you’ll see mostly green at the produce section as dark leafy greens, like kale, and spring greens are in season. It’s the perfect time of year to have a salad, especially with crispy toppers like green onions, rhubarb, and carrots also in season.

Try your favorite in-season fruits and vegetables in some of these healthy recipes:
