Fruit and Vegetable Seasons

Until recently, seasonal eating was normal practice. Our grandparents grew and ate according to the seasons and didn’t have the “convenience” of our globalised food market.

Today, many fruits and vegetables are available all year round, however this doesn’t mean we should buy and eat them. Sticking to the seasons is better for your health, the environment, local business and your pocket.

Here’s a basic list to help you eat seasonally.
