Seasonal Shopping List for July 2017
Shopping seasonally is one of the best things you can do. It is better for the environment and local economy, more sustainable and cheaper. Many say it is much healthier too.
Here’s what you should be looking out for this month;
Fruit and Veggies
Artichoke, Beetroot, Courgette, Aubergine, Fennel, Pea, Runner bean, Tomato, Watercress, French bean, Sage, Lettuce, Mangetout, Cauliflower, Broad bean, Blueberry, Strawberry, Loganberry and Raspberry.
Fish and Meat
Clam, Pike, Trout, Pilchard, Lamb, Cod, Crab, Dover sole, Haddock, Halibut, Herring, John Dory, Lemon sole, Mackerel, Plaice, Salmon, Sardine, Scallop, Sea bass and Sea trout.
Berries are lovely and sweet now. Runner beans are in this month too. Sea trout are only available for a small time, so if you want to try this delicious fish, now is the time to search it out so try your local fishmonger, it won’t be in the supermarket!
I suggest you make the most of this beautiful weather and try a veggie bbq – aubergine, courgette and peppers…just add olive oil and sea salt – yummy !! Maybe eat with pitta bread and a yoghurt dressing over your watercress salad.
