What’s in Season: Winter Edition

A quick guide to local foods in BC – during the winter!

What’s in Season?

It’s easy to think of seasonal and local products in the summer time, but what about the winter? The folks at Buy Local. Eat Natural. are a great resource for this very question. In BC, the various climates offer a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and meats all throughout the year. Plentiful early-winter fruits and vegetables include apples, cranberries, beets, and brussels sprouts. Also dairy farmers milk everyday, therefore, making fluid milk and other milk products available to BC residents year-round. Use the Buy Local. Eat Natural. Find Local in-season reference tool to help find your next locally-grown meal.

In December, look for the following at your local farmer’s market or grocery store:

Beets Apples Cilantro Pacific Cod Cheese
Carrots Pears Rosemary Spot Prawns Cream
Leeks Sage Sablefish Milk
Potatoes Thyme Shellfish
