Fresh fruit in March / early April ?

We will be in the Algarve and southern Spain ( Andalucia) the middle of March until April 8th. What fresh fruit and vegetables will we be able to find at this time of the year?

  1. You'll be able to find everything - either imported or grown locally under plastic (much of andalucia is given over to force grown fruit and veg to supply the rest of Europe.

    But for local natural seasonal produce look for spring onions, garlic shoots, wild asparagus, spring mushrooms, artichokes, escarole lettuce, cherries and fresh spring peas.
