Fruits and vegetables in season by month: March

Beetroot, broccoli, artichokes, cardoons, catalogna chicory. Here’s the list of foods in season in March for a sustainable grocery shopping.

Besides the traditional cereal and legume sprouts, try Greek hay sprouts with their slightly bitter taste. They can be easily grown and give a special touch to salads and sandwiches, especially with ricotta cheese.
