Shop Seasonal

Do you know why summer is the best time of year? Two words: seasonal produce. The main reason why buying seasonal produce is the right choice, is for the taste. It will always taste sweet, fresher and crisp and not to mention it’s packed with more nutritional benefits. 

We are all aware of how our fruit and veggies make us big and strong; however, have you considered how important it is to buy them fresh? 

Shelf life is a biggie. Unfortunately, you are not aware how long these fruits and vegetables have been sitting in supermarkets. Over time, the nutritional value decreases, meaning the produce isn’t as good for you, and of course, the taste isn’t as enjoyable. Rubbish, I know!

Here at Shop Alloa First you can guarantee the produce is fresh and tastes good! 

With reference to foodanddrink.scot, here is a small list of some of the best fruits and vegetables to buy in July and August to kick start your tastebuds.
