what's seasonal when? (for Quebec/Canada)

  • 7

Does anyone know of a good site that lists what's in season locally for each month?

While I have some vague ideas like asparagus and fiddleheads in the spring, berries, nectarines, and peaches in the summer, apples and squashes in the fall, and so forth, just going to the market is not really enough since there's imported stuff there too. Something specific to Quebec would be great, but even specific to Canada would be helpful.

      1. Hiya - here you go:

        http://www.ajmquebec.com/index.cfm?fu...

        If that link doesn't work, go to http://www.ajmquebec.com - click English from the bottom menu, then under Export in the left-hand menu, choose Availability Chart.

        It's also reproduced in a more readable format in French here:
