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.

What can we buy in March? Winter is drawing to a close, and buds and sprouts are announcing nature waking up. Homegrown sprouts, which are rich in vitamins, are perfect in this time of the year with their depurative properties. 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.
