Hello!

Just in case you're wondering, I do keep updating the Calendar. I know the posts on the main blog have been far and few between, but worry not, whenever I spot a new seasonal produce, it does get added to the Calendar.

Enjoy and Bon App'!

The Calendar will steer you towards seasonal -and therefore, often less expensive, always fresher- produce, and will serve as a reminder for when local foods are available. Some of the foods listed are not local by any means -some, in fact, are imported from very far away, but are still lovely seasonal treats, so I listed them anyway.

In British Colombia, the season usually begins about 2 to 4 weeks earlier, and can end up to 2 months later.
