What’s In-Season? Spring/Summer Edition
Dreaming of Summery Michigan-Grown Produce
At Double Up, we believe in big dreams, healthy food, and Michigan-grown produce.
In Michigan, Double Up helps families who use an EBT/Bridge Card get the healthy food they need to reach their dreams. And by promoting farmers markets and locally-grown produce, Double Up helps support local growers across the state. Plus, we think Michigan-grown produce is just….dreamy!
Here’s some seasonal, Michigan-grown produce to look out for next time you shop (including a downloadable shopping list!).
Looking for ideas on what to make with all of these fresh fruits and veggies? We have a few suggestions:
- When asparagus shows up at local markets, you know summer is just around the corner. Celebrate nice sunny days with this fresh lemon and asparagus pasta recipe from Michigan Asparagus.
- Michigan Farmers Market Association’s recipe for oatmeal blueberry pancakes is a hearty take on a kid-favorite breakfast.
- This flexible frittata recipe from our friends at Cooking Matters is fun to make and full of fresh veggies!
Whether you’re a kid, a grownup, or somewhere in between, we all have dreams. Double Up Food Bucks helps us get healthy food so we can reach them.
P.S. We asked a few Michigan kids to tell us about their dreams. Sign up for our monthly e-newsletter to hear them first.
