What's in season? Spring onions
Spring onions have a subtler flavour than normal onions; they are sweet but still possess a pleasant tang closer to the bulb.

One of the best greens you could possibly consume, asparagus is a great all-rounder to place on your shopping list this month - they're at their absolute best right now.
Sweet things come in small packages and blueberries are the perfect example of this! The small, marble-sized berries are perfect for all those yummy treats like cakes, muffins, tarts and jams.
You used to hang them on your ears as earrings (don’t deny it), but as grown ups, cherries are a mighty fine sweet treat to snack on during summer and give yourself a boost of Vitamin C.
Made famous by Popeye, spinach has a large nutritional value, rich in iron, vitamin A, C, E, K, magnesium and several antioxidants. It is also very high in folate.
Sweet, sweet oranges
Not much signals the start of the warmer weather than the fresh, fruity scents of citrus. So it’s no surprise that oranges are at their absolute best around this time of year.
