I can't believe that here we are in August already!
August may be a slow month when it comes to Florida produce but it is a busy summer month none the less. packed full of birthdays, end of summer fun, and our family getting ready for back to school.
Fresh from Florida produce starts picking up in September when the weather starts to cool off just slightly.
As we head into the fall and winter the list of fresh Florida produce grows. You can see the difference between the Florida August produce and the December Florida produce list by just how many more fresh fruits and vegetables are in season during the winter months in Florida.
