I try to consume seasonal and local produce whenever possible. It is of course much easier to do that in the summer and fall I find than in the winter when the only seasonal produce available are root vegetables and squashes of all kinds. those have their charm too obviously and they do contribute to the whole cozy, warm feeling we all need in winter but after about the 3rd straight month of eating squash, potatoes and turnips, I long for something fresh. That’s why I love spring and summer! I get so excited by the many different choices of fresh fruit and vegetables!

Here’s a short list of some of my favourite Quebec summer produce. It is not an extensive list so please don’t hesitate to let me know if I forgot something!
