Regional produce?

I enjoy going to farmers markets whenever I travel and find the regional differences quite interesting. Tragically, the pluots I so love from CA markets are nowhere to be found in my area. Last week I encountered ground cherries for the first time in Ottawa. NM has its chiles.

Here in DC, pawpaws are about the most exotic thing I've found. Not sure where else those grow.

What am I missing out on that you find in abundance in your area?
