Spring has us firmly in its grasp which means the farmers markets and grocery store bins will be overflowing with a whole host of new locally grown produce as the spring planting season begins to bear fruit.   Our desert climate means different growing seasons than much of the rest of the country and provides us with near year round access to a wide range of fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, and dairy products grown right here at home.  In order to get the freshest, most flavorful food products on the market, you can purchase those products grown or raised right here at home.

Here is a list of what is in season this month and ideas for delicious recipes featuring each of these locally grown in season items.
