This March is all about St. Patrick’s Day, Easter and National Nutrition Month in the food content creation world. Work ahead with these March email newsletter ideas for food bloggers and food content creators.

March is often a challenging month for food content. It’s still winter but people are growing tired of root vegetables and they’re looking for lighter, brighter flavors after months of comfort food. But, this year (2024), Easter and Ramadan are both in March so that creates a huge opportunity for newsletter content creation!


Easter and Ramadan are both prominent holidays taking place in March. Ramadan starts on March 10th and runs until April 9th. Good Friday is March 29th and Easter Sunday is on March 31st) Each have their own unique food based traditions. That means lots of content ideas!

  • the food!
  • entertaining – small groups, large groups, casual, budget friendly, upscale, planning and prepping
  • kid friendly projects
  • classic traditions
  • modern twists on tradition
  • don’t forget leftovers!


Early, locally grown spring produce starts to appear towards the end of the month and is very location dependent but, most North Americans will start to see:

  • asparagus
  • California strawberries
  • locally grown tomatoes (where greenhouse agriculture is prominent)
  • locally grown cucumbers (where greenhouse agriculture is prominent)
  • locally grown peppers (where greenhouse agriculture is prominent)
  • root veggies, hardy greens (cabbage, kale), leeks, squash, potatoes, and citrus fruit are all still in season

Now’s the time to get started. Plan out your March newsletter calendar and batch write your emails. Schedule them and you’re good to go!
