July Produce

Oh man, I know half of July has already crept on by, but it’s never too late to know what’s in season for the month.  

I love heading to the urban farms here in Austin they offer a more unique variety of produce than the grocery store. Its definitely an early morning trip due to the heat, but usually thats when they have the best stuff. Go support a local farmer. I promise it’s a lot more fun than the grocery store.

Here is a list of all things grown from the earth in July here in TX and a good chunk of the states. There are a lot of fruits and vegetables you can get year around, but this list is what taste the best this time of year. The fruits and vegetables will also vary depending on your part of the world.
