Eat the Seasons: What’s in Season in June?

Whats in Season in June

Walking through the farmers markets is the perfect way to see exactly what’s in season in your local area, and it’s a great way to re-connect with nature and the seasons. If you want to read more of my thoughts on eating seasonally and locally, you can read that here.

Here’s a little recap:

  • Avoid any foods grown in other countries and imported due to the chemicals, pesticides & procedures used.
  • Eating seasonally and locally is important because that usually means you are getting local, fresh produce, supporting your local farmers and are eating foods that your body needs for the weather at that time of year.
  • The best way to eat seasonally is by buying your produce at the farmers market.

In some parts of the world the farmers markets are only on in certain seasons, which means shopping at the supermarket. This list of produce thats in season will help guide you through the farmers markets or supermarket.

Here are the Eat the Seasons lists for other months: May.
