Seasonal eating is the core value of French’s savoir-vivre philosophy. Outdoor markets in France do not stock strawberries in December, and neither do they have oranges in June. French people savour their fruits in accordance to one tenet: Seasonal eating. Let’s find out more about this interesting eating philosophy through the article below.
Why do French eat seasonally
Markets in France only stock seasonal fruits. At first, this might annoy you, but over time, you will gradually warm up to the ripeness of fresh fruits. One of the reasons why French eat seasonally is to take in the best nutrition and savour the best fruits.
Some seasonal fruits in France:
Vegetables: artichokes, asparagus, beets, spinach, etc.
Fruits: apricots, cherries, strawberries
Vegetables: corns, eggplants, potatoes, etc.
Fruits: limes, blackberries, peaches, plums, blueberries, raspberries
Vegetables: broccoli, Brussels sprouts, fennels, onions, shallots, etc.
Fruits: apples, figs, grapes, kiwi, pomegranates, etc.
Vegetables: carrots, cauliflowers, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, etc.
Fruits: lemons, oranges, tangerines, pears, dates
