Saving money at organic grocery stores is already a difficult task. To keep the cost as low as possible you should look into what’s in season locally.
Supply and demand are in full swing when it comes to shopping in season in every realm of life, including food. Certain foods tend to be cheaper due to the abundance of crop that is produced during different seasons in the area.

Here is a calendar you can check out for what crops are in season for every month of the year in Illinois!
Shop smart, keep your fridge full and your wallet fat!
