Weekly seasonal produce report?

kleine mocha | Feb 20, 2010 08:42 AM

Chowhounders: is any of you aware of a weekly radio or online report of what one would expect to find in the local farmers' markets? The closest I have found so far is the KCRW show Good Food, but that is based on Santa Monica, which might be similar to here but not exactly the same.

I'm working with a book that helps with meal planning but from a locavore point of view it doesn't make a lot of sense, offering red pepper-stuffed chicken breast as a winter menu item, as well as zucchini, etc. Now, I know you can get those at Safeway all year round, but if you are trying to stick with locally grown, seasonal food, you need to plan a different menu.

Of course I could go down every week and have a look for myself, but that would mean making two trips, with weekly menu planning in between. What can I say, I am a lazy girl!
