Choose seasonal and local

Find the harvest seasons in your region: 

Benefits of eating seasonal and local together:

  • It’s cost-efficient. Planning meals around in-season fresh produce is one of the easiest ways to save on groceries.
  • More nutrients. Nutrients in food start declining the minute the food is picked, so the sooner you eat the food post-harvest, the better.
  • Fresh and not stored. Fruit and vegetables that are in season are likely to be fresher, tastier and more nutritious.
  • You support local farmers. Buying items from farmer’s markets as opposed to buying from supermarkets is less energy-intensive

Here are some tips:

Avoid highly perishable products. As a general rule of thumb, don’t buy highly perishable products that are not in season and local.

Use wilted fruits for smoothies and wilted vegetables for soups. 

Refrigerate where you can, keep vegetables fresh by storing the stems in water and turn less fresh fruits and vegetables into pickles and preserves if you can.
