EAST
Stone fruit, including cherries, pluots, plums, peaches, and nectarines, is coming! In mid to late June, expect red, white, and sour cherries from Kauffman’s Fruit Farm and Beechwood Orchards and possibly New Jersey blueberries as well. Late June, we will see garlic scapes from Landisdale Farm, as well as squash and spring onions from New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Herbs of all types from around the region will be in to add summery freshness to your menu.

CENTRAL/MIDWEST
Early summer brings seasonal favorites: make the freshest salad in town with cucumbers, tomatoes, and lettuce from Iron Creek Farm. Chicago’s Wood Street Urban Farm offers a riot of herbs such as basil, tarragon, and dill as well as spring favorites like asparagus, peas, strawberries, and green garlic. And break out the pie pans: Mick Klug Farm’s tart cherries will begin appearing in late June.

SOUTHWEST
It’s time for juicy peaches. We’re getting lots of stone fruit from California: donut peaches, nectarines, and cherries.

Some people wait all year for them: Angelcots. We’re getting the elusive, white-fleshed apricot varietal from Marty Maggiore. This early season variety is bred for juicy sweetness. Organic nectarines from Olson Family Farms are delicious. Berry fans will appreciate the organic blueberries from Delta Blue Blueberries and the ALBA Organics raspberries. Combine the fresh garlic from Full Belly Farm with Persian cucumbers from T&D Willey Farms and and some Greek yogurt for a revelatory version of tzatziki.
