Fruit and Vegetables in Season in March

Want to know which fruit and vegetables are in season in March?  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 fruit and vegetables are in season in March.  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

  • Rhubarb

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!

The Vegetables to Eat Now

  • Cabbage – Savoy and Spring Green
  • Cauliflower
  • Celeriac
  • Chicory
  • Jerusalem Artichoke
  • Kale
  • Kohlrabi
  • Leeks
  • Parsnips
  • Potatoes (maincrop)
  • Purple Sprouting Broccoli
  • Salsify
  • Shallots
  • Swede

And there we have it – what’s in season in March!  I’m particularly excited for rhubarb season – I’m going to be making this cheeky boozy rhubarb cordial for sure – it’s a good recipe to have up your sleeve and great for jazzing up cava or prosecco!

Fruit and Vegetables in Season in February

leeks

Wondering what’s in season in February?  Wonder no more!  I’ve got the definitive list of the fruits and vegetables in season in Britain this month.

I also had a bit of a brainwave this month to make these lists even more useful for you!  I’ve attached a PDF download of this list (without photos) so you can easily print it off and pin it to your fridge, or fold it up and carry it in your bag when you go shopping so you know what to look for!  Why I didn’t think of it sooner, I do not know.  The good thing is I’ve also taken the liberty to go back and do it for every month’s Fruit and Vegetables in Season post so far.  I hope this is a useful addition for you!

Anyway, on to the fruit and veg in season in the UK.  February sees leeks and cabbage at their very best.  However, there are lots of other good things in season this month.  The old favourites – apples and pears.  And that winter staple – kale!
