Eating food in season – when it’s ready locally – means it’s fresher and at its tastiest. It’s also usually cheaper too. Make the most of summer fruits at their best, and plan what to buy year round for a good value, nutritious shopping basket.
Food grown out of season might need extra energy to grow it, or have to travel many miles to get to us, so eating in season is greener too. Scotland can grow a huge range of fruit and vegetables and eating more of what we produce, helps support our local farmers and communities too, and that means we’re all better off.
