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

eoj May 12, 2007 09:42 AM

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.

    SOS cuisine's local product availability table, for Quebec:

    They also do 'public market menus' from May to October

      Hiya - here you go:

      http://www.ajmquebec.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=exportation.tab_disponibilite&CFID=18903&CFTOKEN=912D3459-10C3-77E3-DDFD1249C9D9C110

      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:
