Potatoes produce one crop per year, but thanks to quality-controlled storage, some types (e.g., russets) are available year-round while other types (e.g., reds, yellows, whites, and specialties) have more limited availability due to storability as well as growing regions.
Potatoes are grown in all 50 states, but there are regions with prime conditions and infrastructure to grow, store, and ship fresh potatoes. Explore the map to see the top 10 potato producing states. Looking to buy locally grown potatoes? Visit a local farmers’ market for a farmer selling fresh potatoes. At your favorite grocery store, ask the produce manager where they get bulk or bagged fresh potatoes, or make a specific potato request.
