"If you are dedicated to good food on a budget (like moi), you are probably already a connoisseur of in-season shopping. If you haven’t considered shopping this way before, I urge you to do so. Why? To name a few reasons:
Cheaper – It’s a great way to save money on your groceries, as you aren’t paying a premium for food that has been flown in from Spain, South Africa, etc. Also, as it’s more abundant in its natural season, it’s much cheaper.
Tastier - It tastes far better. It’s fresher, and therefore, more nutritious.
Good economics – Buying locally allows you to support your local economy. So get thee to a farmers’ market!
Environmentally friendly – It’s more environmentally friendly to eat locally, as your food hasn’t been flown from the other side of the world.
Natural – At the risk of sounding like a mad hippy, it’s more natural to eat seasonally, according to the cycles of the seasons. Strawberries in November? Just say no!
I thought to kick off the September food season I would put together a list of all the best in-season foods for you to keep in mind when make your next shopping list. I will update monthly with what’s now in season as an easy reminder of how to adjust your shopping from month to month. I’ve also put together a list of my favourite sites that have a great collection of in-season recipes, and are a great resource for shopping and cooking seasonally.”
