Seasonal June: What to Eat Now

In Season June

There are loads of good reasons to eat more local, seasonal food. It reduces the energy (and CO2 emissions) needed to grow and transport the food we eat, and it supports UK producers and growers – keeping money in our local economies.

And whilst juicy summer fruits like strawberries, raspberries and tomatoes are available in the supermarkets all year round, buying and eating them out of season means more air miles, and ultimately, less flavour. By contrast, eating them now, when they’re truly at their best (sometimes even fresh from the garden, if you’re the green-fingered type) is one of my favourite things about the summer months. 

SO WHAT’S IN SEASON IN THE UK IN JUNE?

British produce is at its best in the summer – we get to enjoy juicy soft fruits and those vibrant colours that just can’t be found in the colder months.
