I’m including two lists here, primarily for my own convenience, but, they might help you as well — first, there’s the general list of seasonal vegetables (for the US), and, then there is the Northeast list (seasonal vegetables in the American Northeast) – you’ll like this one if a)you’re in the Northeast, and b)you want to be a locavore

If you want a list for a specific state, you can go to to’s listings and choose the state you’re interested in.

The general US list has a lot more vegetables and fruit, and the Northeast has only the products which you can get in this region.

My skills are still limited, so this is not the prettiest chart – what I’ve done is enter each vegetable or fruit under the quarter it first appears in – if it comes in another quarter, I’ve listed it again – so – you look under the quarter, and, then, if you notice something to the left, you look to see the specifics there.  There is no January to March, because nothing is seasonal here in those months.
