      Different fruits and veggies are in season in different area’s. For

      instance, while Apples might be in season in September in Michigan,

      they might be in season much earlier in Georgia.

      Here is a website that might help, though:

      https://fruitseasons.com/

      Your best bet, though, is to find out what is grown locally, and to

      watch prices over a 4 week period and record sale prices vs. full price

      for the items. If you live in a cold weather winter state, then the

      price of fruits and vegetables will be higher because everything is

      shipped in.

      If you live in a year-round warm weather state, the items will be lower

      year round because they can be grown locally.

      Certain area’s are known for certain products. For instance, I grew up

      in the heart of Apple country, in Michigan. My home town is home to the

      Old Orchard juice company. As you can imagine, apples are dirt cheap

      here in the fall.

      In Florida, citrus is big. In Maine, Cranberries are big. In

      California, grapes are big.

      Anyway, hopefully the site I listed will be of some help to you!
