In my article `Eating Seasonally and Locally‘,  I discussed the many benefits of eating locally and seasonally, so as Spring is well and truly here, I thought it relevant to mention some of the fruit and vegetables that are great to eat at the moment.

As I live in Victoria, I am referring to the Vic Farmers Market. If you live elsewhere, be sure to check out your local guide.
