What’s in Season

Each season in Kentucky brings a bountiful array of locally grown fruits and vegetables. From the vibrant colors of spring to the cozy comforts of winter, there is always something extraordinary in season to tantalize your taste buds.

During spring, Kentucky offers abundant fresh choices, such as crisp asparagus, tender lettuce, and juicy strawberries. These flavorsome delights are perfect for adding freshness to your meals.

As summer rolls around, the options become even more enticing. Imagine sinking your teeth into a ripe tomato straight from the vine or savoring the sweetness of watermelon on a hot day. Kentucky's summer harvest also includes mouthwatering peaches, zucchini, and sweet corn – all locally grown and bursting with flavor.

When autumn arrives, Kentucky's fall harvest brings a new range of seasonal delights. Crisp apples, colorful pumpkins, and earthy root vegetables like carrots and potatoes are just some of the treasures you can find at local farmers' markets and orchards. These ingredients lend themselves perfectly to hearty stews, comforting pies, and warm roasted dishes that satisfy your cravings as temperatures drop.

Even in winter, Kentucky still offers an impressive selection of locally-grown produce. Leafy greens like kale and spinach thrive in colder weather and provide essential nutrients during this time when fresh options may seem scarce. Pair them with hearty winter squash or Brussels sprouts for nourishing meals that satisfy you throughout the season.

Whether it's springtime freshness or cozy winter comforts you seek, Kentucky's ever-changing seasons ensure that there is always something delicious in the season. So why not embrace nature by exploring the variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables available throughout the year?
