It's no secret that foods that are in season are less expensive than foods that are shipped in from other regions. Recently, the Farm to Table movement has done a great deal to educate people about the benefits of eating seasonally and locally. One of the biggest benefits is in the increased nutrition that you get from foods that are harvested at the peak of their season and get to your table quickly - they don't lose as many nutrients in transit. Another is to your wallet. Foods that are in season tend to be less expensive. If you're trying to figure out how to get the most out of your grocery dollar, fill your baskets with some of the following in-season fruits and veggies: 

Apples
Blackberries
Cranberries
Dates
Figs
Grapes
Oranges
Pears (late season)
Star Fruit
Pumpkin
Beets
Broccoli
Brussels Sprouts
Cabbage
Cauliflower
Leeks
Lettuce
Okra
Parsnips
Peppers
Shallots
Sweet Potatoes
Turnips
Watercress
