American Peak Seasonal Produce List - March

This peak seasonal list is for the American states starting with the Northeast, the South, Midwest, 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. However, March is looking hopeful, bringing some new growth to some of the dormant states in the South and the Midwest.
