Every month that brings us closer to summer means that we get more and more selections to choose from in the produce department. My local farmers market is really beginning to blossom with choices like asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, Spring greens, herbs, leeks, mushrooms, peas, mango, rhubarb, and soooo much more.

Like every month, below I’ve highlighted the in-season produce for May plus links to five recipes for each fruit or vegetable. Enjoy!
