In the Bay Area -- Local, Seasonal and Delicious

Thanks to Slow Food San Francisco (and the Local Foods Wheel) for what's in season and in the market for us right now.

Here's the list and write up from Slow Foods.

Some highlights: strawberries, kumquats, leeks, king trumpet mushrooms.

If you are not buying from a farmer or at a locally sourced produce market, be sure to check on the food resource. I'm still seeing asparagus from Mexico, for example, even though our own local crops are available.

Update: 12/10/10 -- For year-round info on what's in season when in California, check out this list.  For a national list, check out this link.
