Want to know which fruits and vegetables are in season in November in the UK? And want a free printable to help remind you? Read on!
Eating seasonally is a great way to live more sustainably. Seasonal produce is typically grown locally, reducing the environmental impact of long-distance transportation, plus it helps support local farmers. The added benefit is that seasonal produce can be cheaper than imported fruit and vegetables.
In November pickings are getting a bit slim where the fruit is concerned (hope you like apples and pears!), but thankfully there are still a lot of great quality vegetables in season. November is all about potatoes and red cabbage – they’re at their best this month – but look out for artichokes and butternut squash too.
