Seasonal Produce Update: May! (Yo, Berries, People, BERRIES)

One of the best parts about living in the San Francisco Bay Area (or almost anywhere in California) is the fresh produce.

Produce in season (and preferably from local farms) tastes better than anything I grew up on in Chicago.

Right now, here’s what tastes the best:

  • arugula
  • apricots for May, the apricots are here!!! YUM!
  • artichokes!! Best served with what Charles and I used to call “fat sauce”.
  • Asian greens
  • asparagus
  • beets
  • blackberries Oh My God. YES. Blackberry season has arrived. Candy from the gods! Sweet.
  • blueberries And holy moly blueberry season. It’s only May through July, people. Get. Them. Now.
  • bok choy
  • boysenberries My dad’s favorite: BOYSENBERRIES. And they’re only here in May and June. GO!
  • broccoli
  • cabbage
  • carrots
  • cauliflower
  • celery
  • chard
  • cherries cherries (also ONLY May and June!)
  • collards
  • favabeans fava beans (three months left)
  • fennel
  • garlic
  • kale
  • kiwi (May is the LAST month)
  • leeks
  • lettuces
  • mushrooms
  • mustard le moutard (MUSTARD!) is here
  • nectarines My favorite. Nectarines are upon us.
  • onions
  • oranges (last month my dears)
  • peaches puh-puh-peaches! sexy!
  • peas peas
  • radish
  • spinach
  • w00t! STRAWBERRY season
  • summersquash SUMMER SQUASH! So yummy just sauteed or grilled with a bit of salt


P.S. Fruits and vegetables in season are also less expensive (since they’re not being shipped from Latin America).
