American Peak Seasonal Produce List - January

This peak seasonal list is for the American states with the Northeast, followed by the South, the Midwest, the Southwest and finally the Western states. Even though other produce will be in season in your area, this list is compiled of ingredients that are at the peak of their season only.


Dormant States - Please note that during the winter months there are many states which become dormant, meaning that peak seasonal growth has completely ceased, due to the climate, especially on the east coast, Midwest and some northern west coast states as well. In these cases, it will be necessary to rely on stored, frozen or canned goods until the spring.
