I've been wondering that same thing for awhile. Sorry I can't help but I wanted to bump this up so more could see it.

there is a book called "The 3-season diet" by John Doulliard which is based on eating only foods that are "in season".

Of course it is so easy to find food in season all year wrong all around the world.

But this book is a good start...

I guess it depends on how local you want your produce to be, but I did a search for you and found ProducePete.com. Here the What's in season page:

http://www.producepete.com/whatsin.html

For more local information you may need to search deeper. It's fairly easy to find info about California but I'm not as sure about your region. I was just so excited to get the first strawberries (California grown) of the season at Whole Foods yesterday. Seemed amazingly early, but they tasted great.

More to add...

I think the best way to get familiar with local in season produce is to go to farmers' markets. Here's a list for FM in Mississippi:

If you are far from an all-year one, maybe you'll get a chance to go on an out-of-town outing, and then just talk to the farmers about what to expect in the coming months.
