Aah, August. August is probably my favourite summer month, produce wise – the shops are just heaving with fresh local produce. August sees cos lettuce, plums and raspberries at their best, but there are heaps and heaps of other stuff in season too right now. Here is the guide to what fruit and vegetables are in season in August – and don’t forget to print off the free printer friendly version of this list to help you buy British when you’re at the shops. You can find it here: Fruit and Vegetables in Season in August.
