Vegetables in season for the month of June. Oh, don’t worry, I have added some great recipes for fruits also.
You are probably here because you are wondering what vegetables and fruit you should buy during the month of June. Below you will find a list of what is in season and some fantastic recipes that you can make using the freshest, real food ingredients.
Summer is almost here and that means many fruits and vegetables will be making their way to the farmers market and local stores.
Why eat vegetables in season?
- Taste Better Produce picked at it’s peak tastes better. It also has more nutrition because it was ripened at it’s own time.
- Cheaper You can easily find produce that is in season at the Farmer’s Market. When the farmer comes to you, you get better prices. The farmer needs to get rid of the ripe produce and you benefit.
- Avoid Contaminates Many times when foods are shipped from one country to another, they are sprayed with chemicals, irradiated or bleached.
- Better for the environment Eating seasonally supports your community and the environment. There is less transportation and less irritation of produce. Typically local farmers use less pesticides because they know how to treat the issues that are local.
