Our friends at We ♥︎ Local helped us identify seasonal winter foods in BC.
We are excited this month as we know spring is just around the corner! That means, farmers markets start to open and our community grocery stores start carrying more BC grown products. To help you discover what’s available this month, our friends at We ♥︎ Local have a mobile friendly website that British Columbians can use as a resource to find what’s in season in BC, where to get it, and what to make with your locally grown food! We love to pick out a few of our favourite in-season foods and add recipes and tips for you at home!
