Buying local, seasonal produce has several benefits;
- It is usually cheaper, as it hasn’t travelled very far and is in plentiful supply
- It is better for the environment, as energy is not required for growing or transportation
- It supports the local economy
- It is fresh, and so is more flavoursome and nutrient rich
