    April Is

    As April turns the corner, daylight savings ends and dinner begins with a cool evening.

    It’s time to enjoy fresh limes, passionfruit, pomegranates, persimmons and lemons too. Brussels sprouts, broccoli, leeks and carrots are still plentiful, as are beetroots, lettuces and cucumbers. 

    The FoodWise Seasonal Meal Plan is a collection of recipes for you to make the most of seasonal produce in April. By choosing recipes around seasonality, you eat food that is as flavourful and nutritious as possible and has usually travelled shorter distances to reach your plate. Plus, it’s also a great way to save money.

    The following is a rough guide to what’s in season this April:

    Local farmers’ markets offer a great way to find out what’s in season. By shopping at farmers’ markets, you support your local farmers and can feed your household with fresh and nutritious produce. Find out the location of your closest farmers’ market at the Australian Farmers Markets Association website.

    Fresh fruit and vegetable co-ops and delivery services also offer an easy way to eat with the seasons. Find out more about locally grown food options at Local Harvest.
