Florida Seedless Watermelon is at Season’s Peak! Stock up now!
Buying produce that is at season’s peak will not only get you the freshest produce available, but it will also be at the lowest price. Here’s a way to always know what’s in season.
Publix offers a service called “At Season’s Peak”. You can sign up for alerts and be notified what produce is currently at season’s peak and therefore at it’s lowest prices. You can choose to receive alerts about all produce or only your favorites. You can also choose to be notified by email or text message.
Not only is this a useful tool for shopping in grocery stores, but also at local Farmer’s Markets. If you know what is plentiful, you can get the best deal!
