How important is using seasonal produce to you, as chowhound?

It's so easy these days to get produce out of season. I saw a produce manager explaining to a couple of customers yesterday how to pick good honeydew--what are they doing buying honeydew in January if they're looking for good honeydew? I also read suggestions like that here on the board--melon and prosciutto, berries, in winter, tarte tatin in the summer, etc. I do use canned/boxed tomatoes in the winter but for the most part, I buy produce that are in season, and not shipped in from far away. How about you? Do you normally buy seasonal produce, does it not matter to you (or do you not know/care about the difference?)?
