Let’s get started!

Pool Parties

While we mainly think of pool parties as a summertime activity, searches for pool parties start ticking up as early as February (never hurts to be optimistic 😉)!

And what’s a pool party without a salty snack or poolside sipper? Consider sharing a recipe for a pool party mocktail, ice cream sandwich, or veggie tray! If that doesn’t make you excited for warmer weather, I’m not sure what will.


Matcha has been on the rise for several years now and spring feels like the perfect time of year to feature this fresh, grassy ingredient.

There are so many options for matcha-inspired recipes — think beverages, cookies, breads, and more!

Matcha also feels like a great opportunity to combine a trending ingredient with a seasonal holiday (St. Patrick’s Day, anyone?).


Searches for popsicles peak in June and July, so you’ll want to start sharing your delicious popsicle recipes this spring!

Get creative with your popsicle flavors, and highlight seasonal fruits and herbs for really unique flavor combinations. You could even go all out on trends and make pool party popsicles! 🤯

Farmers Markets

It’s no surprise that interest in farmers markets starts to tick up in the springtime, as many fresh fruits and vegetables are coming into season.

Checking out your local farmers market is the best way to find inspiration for new, seasonal recipes! Farmers markets are also a great way to discover new ingredients and products that you can incorporate into your cooking.


There is nothing better than a cold glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade in the warmer months, and Google agrees!

While everyone loves the OG lemonade recipe, the sky is the limit when it comes to flavor combinations. Think pomegranate lemonade, lemon limeade, mint lemonade — you get the idea!

Of all of the drinks and foods trending this spring, this one might be our favorite! The spring and summer months are the time for all kinds of melon-flavored goodies to shine.

Did you know that there are over 40 different varieties of melon? Watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew… melons are just ripe for recipe development this time of year! 😉

Looking to take advantage of this trending search term this spring? Think watermelon granita, cantaloupe skewers, or a melon Panzanella salad.

Spring Cleaning

You might not associate spring cleaning with food blogs, but hear me out! This is a great time to share some of your best pantry or fridge organization tips with your readers.

This is also a good opportunity to consider sharing affiliate links for your favorite food storage products and/or cleaning supplies! Searches for spring cleaning peak in March, so make sure to plan your content calendar with that in mind.

  1. This post is amazingly helpful. Some of these holidays I didn’t think of. There is one weekend I am looking forward to that is huge for us Canadians. May 2-4 weekend (a.k.a. Victoria Day) It’s the long weekend that tends to kick off the nice weather and involves a lot of BBQ! And it is happening the weekend before Memorial Day. Hope this information gives food bloggers more reason to post those BBQ and Side Dish recipes a little earlier for Canadians to check out.
