Fresh From Florida March Produce
Disclosure: This Fresh From Florida March Produce post was sponsored by Fresh From Florida as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central, however, all opinions expressed are my own.
Florida might be best known for its fresh winter citrus fruit but did you know that Florida also supplies most of the country with fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables all year long?
Florida farmers are working hard all year long to bring you the freshest produce possible 12 months of the year.
During the long cold winter months when most of the country is freezing and buried under a blanket of snow Florida farmers are harvesting fresh fruit and vegetables that you can find in your favorite retail stores.
Check the label for the Fresh From Florida logo or make sure the label says Florida grown so you know you are purchasing Fresh From Florida produce.
One of my favorite Fresh From Florida fruits are Florida strawberries.
March is the end of Florida strawberry season. I have been buying Florida grown strawberries since January and enjoying the plump sweet flavor of fresh Florida strawberries all winter long.
I love buying locally grown and in season fruit and vegetables because I know the fruits and vegetables I am buying are the freshest they can be.
I love to preserve Florida strawberries so I can enjoy them during the rest of the year until Florida strawberry season rolls around again in late December.
This weekend I canned six quarts of strawberry pie filling. This time of the year Florida strawberries are on sale and I stocked up at Publix to make my homemade strawberry pie filling.
I love to freeze, dehydrate or can all our favorite fruits and vegetables so we can enjoy them once they are out of season.
During the month of March you can shop for Fresh From Florida Bell Peppers, Strawberries, Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Radishes, Snap Beans and Cabbage.
Vine ripened Florida tomatoes are delicious in a salad or on a sandwich.
I couldn’t pass up a few of these ruby red Florida tomatoes while I was shopping at Publix for the strawberries I needed to make my homemade strawberry pie filling this weekend.
I make it a point to check the produce labels as I am shopping to make sure I am buying fresh, local Florida produce and so should you.
I love buying produce that has been grown in my home state. I know I am buying the freshest fruit and vegetables available but I also love to support our Florida farmers.
