Enjoying the seasons

Posted on Updated on

This is a simplified list of common foods that tend to be cheaper when in season. This is also a good time to look for them at Farmers’ Markets and similar. In reality the seasons will have areas of overlap, and availability may not be as precise as this, but it is meant to act just as a rough guide.

    Oooh – I love watercress and rhubarb ( though not together!!) Thanks for the heads up to look out for them now-ish!

      It’s early for rhubarb but the forced stuff is out there and with it a sense that spring is round the corner.
