The secret to buying vegetables and fruit

If you want the best and tastiest vegetables or fruit, choose ones that are in season and grown in New Zealand.

These are the vegetables and fruit that are the most plentiful. The other good news is that fruits and vegetables that are in season are often on special at your supermarket or vegetable shop.

The other top tip to buying low-cost, super fresh fruit and vegetables is to find a market near you. These markets are usually open on one morning or day each week and held in car parks or other open spaces. The people selling the fruit and vegetables are often the growers or pickers so you can be sure you’re getting good value. Find your nearest fresh vegetable market.
