June is the first of four "peak produce" months in Ohio (June through September). Not coincidentally, it is also the start of our four-month Tuesday Market season! We know what brings out the crowds: juicy strawberries (they're here!), crisp cucumbers, and saucy tomatoes. Here's our best guess of what to expect at the Canal Market District over the month of June:
EARLY JUNE: Salad greens, strawberries, radishes, and plant starts for your own garden. Leafy greens like kale and chard are a great staple.
MID JUNE: A few early tomatoes, cucumbers, and more strawberries! Kale and chard should stick around. Possibly some early raspberries.
LATE JUNE: Raspberries! Blueberries! Tomatoes! Cukes! Possibly green beans, but more likely we'll see those in July.
Of course, these are just educated guesses. No one knows what the weather will do! Eating seasonally is always an adventure and a surprise.
