September is coming and, with it, new seasonal fruits and vegetables that you will soon begin to see at your nearest greengrocer. In Spain we have a wide variety of fruits and vegetables throughout the year. From fig or spinach to apple, raspberry or mushroom. However, not all of them are available at any time. Despite the fact that it is increasingly easy to find all kinds of fruits and vegetables at any time of the year thanks to importation or greenhouse production, there are still some that we cannot find in our nearest greengrocer.
Why is it important to buy fruits and vegetables in season? Pmainly for its flavor. It is not the same to consume a product that has grown in optimal conditions than another that has grown in a greenhouse. But not only that. Consuming fruits and vegetables in season contributes to the sustainability of the food system by reducing energy consumption and generating less carbon dioxide emissions. A process that, in short, is much more respectful of the environment.
