Buying food in season makes sense for a few reasons.
And autumn, with its huge variety of fruits and vegetables for your table, is the perfect time to start. But why buy seasonal fruit and vegetables? Here’s why!
1. Seasonal Makes Sense
Fruit and vegetables (and even some meats for that matter) are seasonal. Food in season is fresher, tastier and more nutritious than out-of-season food that has been grown forcefully to meet the market.
2. Secondly in Cents
Buying food out of season also means it travels a long way to get to you and most likely wasn’t grown locally, which increases the cost to you. It is also likely to not be available in abundance translating to grocers charging as they please for it rather than competitively pricing for a flooded market.
