What’s in Season: Early Summer Edition (June)

Early summer months in BC have a plentiful selection of locally grown foods. We can’t get enough of these seasonal treats and savour them as they’re in abundance! Here’s a great list of in-season products and suggested recipes to try at home or to take to a summer party. Don’t forget that products such as dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt), meats (chicken, beef, eggs), and greenhouse vegetables (look for Product of BC stickers) are available all year-round!

This June, look for the following foods at your local farmers’ market or grocery store:

Beans Blueberries Bay Leaves Clams Cheese (Guide)
Cauliflower Boysenberries Chives Herring Roe Cream (Tips)
Endives Cherries Mint Prawns (Spot) Ice Cream
Kale Gooseberries Oregano Sardines Milk
