It’s always great to know what’s in season when your planning what to cook or what to eat in restaurants. How many times have you seen the phrase we focus on seasonal local food and you get parma ham and chocolate cheesecake on the menu?
This list is not exhaustive, it’ll just give you an idea of what to look for, and to avoid oddities such as asparagus from Peru when it was in season here (guess which big supermarket that was). No apologies for including some fruit from Europe such as apricots. You can even get Scottish cherries from Edinburgh’s farmers’ market currently!
