BUY IN SEASON TO SAVE MONEY!

No food is “cheap” but if you buy in season your fresh fruit and veg should be at least a bit cheaper! For example – don’t buy fresh strawberries at Christmas time – they won't have much taste and will have been flown half way round the world at great cost, both to the planet and you! Choose seasonal, local produce, from farmer’s markets if possible.

What’s in season NOW?

Apples, autumn lamb, beetroot, broccoli, cabbage, chestnuts, courgettes, elderberries, fennel, kale, mackerel, marrow, main crop potatoes, mushrooms, oysters, pears, pumpkin, rabbit, radishes, squash, sweetcorn, turnips, watercress.
