I’m continuing my monthly series of what’s in season each month this month with my guide to fruit and vegetables in season in July.
July is such a wonderful month for seasonal produce – I feel like we’re really spoiled for choice here in the UK.
This month I’ve continued to share what produce is in season, because I don’t know about you, but I have found having a list to hand of what to look out for when I am at the supermarket or local shop is really handy for meal planning.
Something I also learned this month was about economy. I knew it was cheaper to buy fruit and vegetables in season, but I didn’t know quite how much. Thankfully Eat Seasonably has done the maths for me and says that a basket of in-season fruit and vegetables can be a third cheaper than the same one bought out of season. A third! That’s a whole lot of money! It also saves a load of carbon too, eating locally produced foods, rather than foods imported from abroad. Double win!
Cherries, curly lettuce, and cucumber are at their best in July, but here’s the definitive list of fruit and vegetables in season in July in the UK. I’ve also snuck the in-season herbs in again.
