Whether I’m picking up citrus for my morning glass of oj, a salad, after soccer snacks, or a brunch spread, I want to find just the right fruit for the occasion and luckily the Boston area has many fabulous options to find your oranges, blood oranges, grapefruits, clementines, mandarins and more.
Shop Until You Drop But Don’t Topple The Display
I like to shop local, as you know and the stores will be local but the citrus won’t be. Ideally, I like my Florida citrus because it is closer to home than California or Peru. As a kid I remember so much of the citrus we got in Canada was from South Africa, but we would never buy it because of apartheid. My favourite place to get Florida oranges for the winter is the Somerville Winter Market.
You don’t have to go to the market to get your citrus though.
