Learn what’s in season

At O, we love to shop in season when it comes to produce. Fruits and vegetables are their freshest during their peak seasons. While we love every season for the variety of goodies that each bring to the table, we have to admit that summer’s abundance makes it our favorite. Plus, who doesn’t love a good farmers market on a warm, sunkissed summer day?

Some of our favorite fruits and veggies that peak in the summer season include:

  • Apricots
  • Beets
  • Berries galore (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries to name a few)
  • Champagne Grapes (hello champagne vinegar varietals!)
  • Citrus (grapefruit and lime)
  • Corn
  • Cucumbers
  • Eggplant
  • Endive
  • Figs
  • Garlic
  • Green beans
  • Melons (cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon — O my!)
  • Nectarines
  • Passion Fruit
  • Peaches
  • Peas
  • Peppers (sweet and spicy varietals like Anaheim chiles, bell peppers and jalapeños)
  • Plums
  • Radishes
  • Summer squash
