Want to know which fruit and vegetables are in season in March in the UK? Read on!
Hello March! You’re looking mighty fine!
I don’t know if it’s all the snowdrops and crocuses in bloom right now. Or the fact that every florist and corner shop around here is dripping in daffodils. Or the fact that the days are getting progressively longer, and there are thoughts of blue skies ahead. Whatever it is, I’m definitely beginning to feel a little spring in my step, even if the weather isn’t quite matching my mood yet!
Like in previous months, I’ve put together my monthly guide to what fruits and vegetables are in season in March here in the UK.
And because I’m super good to you, I’ve again put together a free printable (image free) that you can download and print out. Pin it to your fridge door or take it with you on shopping trips. I don’t know about you but in previous months I’ve been finding this printable incredibly useful! You can download this free guide to what’s in season in March right here.
Now let’s get on to the fruit and vegetables in season in March.
The Fruit In Season in March
Yes, it’s slim pickings for British seasonal fruit right now. There’s very little in season in March because we’re in the Hungry Gap. This is the period in spring when there is very little by way of fresh produce to harvest. The winter root vegetables are on their way out, and fresh produce doesn’t tend to be ready to harvest until May at the very earliest. Better days are coming though, so hang on in there!
The Vegetables to Eat Now
- Cabbage – Savoy and Spring Green
- Jerusalem Artichoke
- Leeks (did you know you can regrow leeks – here’s just how to regrow vegetables from scraps so can learn this clever trick!)
- Potatoes (maincrop)
- Purple Sprouting Broccoli
And there we have it – what’s in season in March! I’m particularly excited for rhubarb season, it’s a definite favourite of mine. A bit of rhubarb jam in your porridge in the morning really sets you up for the day!
