What is in Season / En Temporada
Crops are rotated seasonally and come to production at different times of the year. For edible crops, seasonality is key in trying to eat locally. There are sites with maps that illustrate what is in season, with the late summer months having the most produce available and some produce available year round.

These seasons are from the State of Oregon and Oregon Fresh.net, but their seasonal productions are subject to climate, annual conditions, location, and grower availability1,2:
