Robbie Sigona’s Produce Tips: Arugula

Robbie Sigona is our produce buyer. He works with local farmers and scours the market for the very best in fresh fruits and vegetables — some you won’t find anywhere else.

  • Locally-grown arugula from San Juan Bautista down to Salinas is available from April-November.
  • Fresh arugula should be all green. A light green is ok, but avoid yellow leaves.
  • Arugula is extremely delicate and should be used within a day or two of purchase.
  • Keep refrigerated (stored with a damp paper towel) until you eat.
  • If you rinse the arugula, be sure to remove as much moisture as possible before adding to a salad or tossing with a vinaigrette.
