New Hampshire has a short, sweet growing season, like all of New England. As with so many places, once you start looking around there is plenty of local produce around. Depending on the growing season crop availability will vary.

In the warmest years, seasons start earlier and last longer; in colder years harvest times start later and end sooner. You can also look up produce by seasons (spring, summer, fall, winter) or region.
