Local seasonal foods are tastier, fresher and more nutritious.
Why? It’s because the produce has been harvested in the last fews days and has only travelled a short distance to market. This means less packaging, processing and refrigeration. All good for the environment (no flying in food from all corners of the planet)and your health.
Here is a list of fruits and veggies that are in season for December:
- Brussels sprouts
- Greens (cooking)
- Star fruit
- Sweet potatoes
- Winter squash
Great all year:
- Snow Peas
Note: If you live in and area with favorable growing conditions, many of these vegetables are available to you throughout the seasons.
