Buying seasonal food makes sense for a lot of reasons. Eating with the natural seasonal cycle means your food requires less resources to grow and often doesn’t need to be transported as far. That means it’s often cheaper, too.
Eating with the seasons makes eating well easy, because foods that come into season at the same time have a natural synergy in terms of cooking styles and taste – like a garlic and basil pesto in summer, an apple and rhubarb crumble in autumn, a Jerusalem artichoke and celeriac soup in winter, an asparagus and pea risotto in spring.
This comprehensive list we found on The Food Co-op Shop’s website list aims to give you an idea of when produce is at its peak of taste and value.
