FRUIT AND VEGETABLE SEASONALITY

Here is our simple guide to help you identify which fruit and vegetables are in season in your local shops and supermarket. In an age where it is possible to get almost any food at any time, it’s sometimes nice to take advantage of the cost savings and reduce the impact on the environment by buying seasonally.

HOW TO STORE YOUR VEGETABLES

VEGETABLES

The vegetable selection of your local shop or supermarket will include everything from traditional Winter harvests to Summer salads throughout the year. This availability of fresh produce makes our lives easier and more varied, however, you should also take a look at what is in season to help you eat healthier and save a little money. For example, root vegetables are readily available in the winter and are cheaper. They also make delicious and warming Winter stews and casseroles to keep you going in the colder months!
