What's in Season?
Eat with the seasons
We live in a temperate climate. In other words we’re lucky enough to have seasons. It makes sense to eat fruit and vegetables when they are in season – not when they’ve been forced in power hungry greenhouses. A crisp salad on a baking hot summer’s day, or a wholesome casserole in the winter. Fresh strawberries in June, sprouts in December. This way of eating is good for you and it’s good for the planet.
All fruit and veg has a time when it’s at its seasonal best. Knowing what to buy and when means you’ll enjoy extra flavour, crunch and juiciness.
