What's In Season for April



This summer, I've vowed to cook along with the seasons after watching Jamie Oliver frolicking all winter in his gigantic vegetable garden on the Food Network.

Here's a list of foods in season this month in various provinces in Canada. (Since this is an Ottawa blog, I've also added a section for our nation's capital.) My sources are the websites of farmers market associations. Not all of them have the same fruits and veggies on their harvest charts, hence the discrepancy between Ottawa and Ontario.

Please comment if you know of any other reliable links with harvest charts for the other provinces and territories, as I'd eventually like to list them all here.

Hi Asha

Try this link from Foodland Ontario - it's the provincial government's list of seasonal availability.

Hey Asha,

This is a great site too: http://www.spcottawa.on.ca/ofsc/en/buylocal/buy_local_home.htm

They have a downloadable guide for what is in season and local producers in the Ottawa area.
