Want to know WOT’s in season for March! We are giving all the details below!

Somehow, it’s already March, and that means out with the cold and cozy and in with spring! A season of growth and renewal, spring always has us ready to trade in our hearty soups for lighter fare, bursting with seasonal produce. This month you will start to see the produce section filling up with leafy greens, root vegetables, tropical fruit, and more.

Why should you shop for seasonal produce? 

Seasonal produce is harvested at its peak ripeness, giving you the best flavor, freshness, and nutritional content. It also promotes environmental sustainability by reducing the need for artificial growing conditions, excessive pesticides, and long-distance transportation. Additionally, if you choose to support local farmers, you invest in sustainable farming practices and reduce the carbon footprint associated with food transportation.
