Everyone’s getting pumped to find out who the number 1 seeds are going to be in NCAA March Madness, but we’re even more pumped to find out which produce ingredients reigns supreme this month! In the spirit of March Madness, we’re hosting our very own battle, filled with the freshest ingredients from every season.

Each day, we’ll have a new match-up between two produce ingredients. We’re beginning with the two spring ingredients, strawberry and artichoke. Which ingredient would you rather eat or which do you enjoy cooking with most? Whichever you prefer, make sure to vote for it so it can move ahead and have a chance to become the March Produce Champion! Your vote determines which fruit or vegetable makes it to the next round.
