August Produce Month In Pa.

August Produce Month — The Pennsylvania Vegetable Marketing and Research Program, along with vegetable growers across the Commonwealth, are celebrating August as Produce Month in Pennsylvania, reports State Rep. Jim Cox (R-129).

Pennsylvania’s 4,300 vegetable growers plant nearly 55,000 acres of vegetables that produce more than 200,000 tons of vegetables for fresh and processing use. August is the peak season for many Pennsylvania vegetable crops, and all but the early spring and late fall vegetable crops are available in August.

Vegetables marked with the PA Preferred logo are all from Pennsylvania growers and can easily be identified in supermarkets and farmer’s markets.
