There are many benefits to eating what’s in season including:


  • Higher nutritional value because they are picked at their peak.

  • You can buy them locally and support a local farmer.

  • Your shopping has a smaller impact on the environment as they didn’t need to get shipped across the country.

  • They might add variety to your diet which also boosts your nutrition and keeps you out of boredom.
