Eating in season: June
In June, it’s smart to start taking a bigger basket to the farmer’s market. All of a sudden, there is so much more local produce in season to choose from!
What’s in season this month in Fredericksburg?
Look for the very last spears of local asparagus at the beginning of the month, as well as beets, broccoli, cabbage, mushrooms, onions, greens, sugar snap peas, snow peas and strawberries. New on the scene in June will be blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, green beans, cucumbers, squash and even some local tomatoes. Sweet corn will also start to come in toard the end of the month. June is a great month to get out and explore some of the many pick-your-own farms in the Fredericksburg area.
What to cook in June
Here are a few recipes to help you get the most out of June’s local produce.
- Homemade strawberry ice cream
- Green bean salad with mustard vinaigrette
- Fresh snow pea salad with pancetta and pecorino
- Cabbage cole slaw with ramen – great for pot lucks!
