Sea­sonal Availability

Cal­i­for­nia grows about 80% of all fruits and veg­eta­bles pro­duced in the United States. The sea­sons in Cal­i­for­nia are in most ways, the sea­sons of the nation.

As we look to what fresh prod­ucts are avail­able, we start locally and go glob­ally.
From Apples to Zuc­chini, we have what is cur­rently avail­able in the mar­ket­place for the table.

Here’s a handy Pro­duce Shelf Life Guide for your reference:
