Summer sure has taken its time, but it’s finally arrived in Ontario! It’s the season of smokey evening barbecues, fresh lemonade and crisp salads on the backyard patio with your favourite people.
Now that the Vitamin D is flowing, it’s the best time to make some new good habits – like considering the food you’re eating and where it’s coming from. Do you buy your produce from local farmers? Are you supporting small businesses? Checking to see if the businesses you’re buying from minimize their waste?
Next time you go grocery shopping, take a look at where your food actually comes from. Check if there are any added hormones or chemicals.
If you’re wondering which local fruits and vegetables to include in your summertime spreads, we’ve compiled a list below of all of the seasonal produce in Ontario this month!
