It's fig season! From now through September, you can enjoy the freshest, most perfect figs that nature has to offer.
At the girl & the fig, we rely on friends and neighbors to help keep us stocked on these beautiful, fresh figs. Large crates arrive at the back door, sometimes daily, of perfectly-ripe figs still warm from the sun. These go into our salads, jam & compote, our signature fig crisp, seasonal fruit and cheese plates, and countless other creations.
If you know someone with fresh figs to share, or if you're lucky enough to have a tree of your own, we've put together a series of simple and delicious fresh fig recipes for you to try.
