This month there will be a bunch of new fruits and vegetables available at your local farmers markets and grocery stores as the Arizona air gets warmer. Our desert climate makes it possible for local ranchers and farmers to operate almost year round which means residents have access to a wide range of fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, and dairy products grown right here at home. If you are looking for the freshest, most flavorful food products available, look for those that are grown locally.
Here is a list of what is in season this April and ideas for delicious recipes featuring each of these locally grown in season items.
