What to buy in February.  Fruit and vegetable deals in February.

As we head into February we still are seeing tons of citrus and leafy greens in season. Root vegetables are also at their peak in winter. They are a great, nourishing way to eat local produce in winter. If you are in need of a new way to use winter produce, you can go here for a great Lentil Stew recipe.

We will see more deals on early Spring produce, like strawberries, as the month progresses. Keep in mind that although the items are on sale, we won’t see their best prices for a few more months.

If you are looking for a source that constantly updates, check out the National Fruit & Vegetable Retail Report issued by the government every couple of weeks. This report gives the top 10 fruits and vegetables and the national percentage of which fruits and vegetables are in store ads.

      Hi Jenny! I’m probably totally missing this, but are you saying that the list of produce that you provided is what is in season?

      Lettuce farms in CA took a hit due to bad weather, so it’s going up in price. It’s $3 a head (romaine) at Publix here.

      Aldi’s has 3 romaine lettuce hearts at $2.98, which compared to $5 at Walmart here in Georgia. Aldi’s keeps it in the fridge, so you may not notice it at first. The dark green in the lettuce is much better for you than the pale iceberg lettuce.
