Seasonal Shopping List for September
Autumn is just around the corner – next week in-fact on the 22nd September and it feels as if it is here already with the sudden weather change.
At eco cuisine we are all about sustainable food and eating seasonally is a big part of sustainability. When buying British seasonal produce you are supporting your local economy, helping the environment and it is of course cheaper too.
There are arguments for seasonal eating being a healthier option too.
With this in mind we create a seasonal shopping list so you are aware of what will be in season this autumn and can make informed decisions when buying your weekly food shop.
Fruit and Veggies
Artichoke, aubergine, beetroot, broccoli, sweetcorn, cucumber, courgette, kale, spinach, onion, tomato, lettuce, mangetout, runner bean, pumpkin and squash, leek, plum, blackberry, apple, fig, damson, grape and melon.

I know what you are thinking… all this delicious produce sounds perfect for hearty soups to start and warming fruit pie for dessert and you are right!
