Month-by-Month Guide: Cheapest Fruits and Vegetables

A great way to not only stay healthy, but to trim the cost of your grocery bill is to stick with fruits and veggies that are in season.

Why?

Because they end up being cheaper than other options since the grocery stores have such a surplus of the items.

That being said, some things are fairly cheap all year long, like bananas and apples. But, if you’re looking for something a little different, choose your variety by what is in-season.

Check out the list below for the fruits and veggies that are in-season for each month of the year here in the United States.
