It has a database of all the farmers' markets in Missouri, which you can search by county. Seasonal and Simple also tells users which fruits and vegetables are in season, how to choose, and even has recipes featuring seasonal Missouri produce.

DeBlauw says they'd like to expand the data to include surrounding states in the future -- after a presentation in Washington D.C., Seasonal and Simple got downloads from all over the world. Missouri's growing zone is actually the same as D.C., so it's useful up there, too.

"The thing we would like to see people do is download the app to give them ideas to increase their fruit and vegetable intake. Americans do not eat enough fresh fruit and vegetables," DeBlauw says. "If they can get any kind of prompt at all, they might make something different to increase their intake and eat healthy." Click to download the free app for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
