Although many of us live with 24-hour access to any fruit or vegetable we could want, there are a multitude of reasons why eating seasonally is better for our bodies, our wallets, and the planet.

Choosing to buy food that’s in season locally is key to reducing the carbon footprint of your food, as it means you aren’t choosing produce that’s been shipped halfway across the world.

Fruit and vegetables that have been grown locally also tend to taste better. In general, the produce is likely to be fresher and more nutritious - as it hasn’t been sitting in cargo holds or shipping containers for several days.

But of course, Europe is a big place with completely different climatic regions. Therefore different countries have different suitability for growing crops, meaning what’s in season varies enormously depending on the area.

Every month this page will be updated with the latest information on what’s coming into season.

Top tip: we recommend using the search function on your phone or computer to find your country in this list.

We’re always looking to include more countries too, so if you have favourite fruit or vegetables that are local to your area, we’d love to hear from you on Twitter or Instagram.
