Seasonal Eating Guide

Eating Locally = Eating with the Seasons Did you know the average meal travels 2,000 miles before it gets to our plate? Not only is local food fresher and more nutritious, it tastes better! Biting into that first local strawberry, savoring a sweet local cherry tomato, or the freshest caught wild salmon–there’s just nothing like it. To help you get started, we’ve compiled this handy season-by-season guide that can introduce you to what’s fresh and in season throughout the year. Have fun… and bon appétit!

Available Year-Round

beans, dried beef beets cabbage carrots dairy products: butter, cheese, milk, yogurt eggs kale halibut and black cod hazelnuts herbs honey lamb mushrooms pork potatoes poultry soup bones salmon (flash frozen from Alaska) shell fish (farmed) sprouts … and, locally-crafted foods, from bread and jam to tea and wine!

Can’t find a product you want locally? Talk to your favorite farmer and let them know you would buy it if they produced it OR ask the restaurant or grocery manager to start carrying your favorite local products. Your voice makes a difference!


4 Sustainability Indicators: Look for the Sustainability Indicator icons next to listings throughout this guide, which showcase the steps businesses are taking towards good community stewardship. Find farms that have adopted sustainable agricultural practices that benefit salmon streams or soil health. Find restaurants and retailers who have pledged to buy more local food, reduce waste, or save energy in their businesses. We like to support and recognize businesses who are taking steps toward achieving a healthy triple bottom line. These businesses take care of employees, our environment, AND the local economy. Let your farmers, chefs, and grocers know that you care about the commitments they undertake for the health of our home!
